Egg Zackery !
Nine was an experiment . as there is no top rail.
Maybe having it filled with sugar, stabilises the moisture content ???
anyhoo .. it's still not split in 20 yrs :-)
think about all the really REALLY !! cheap tools (or whatever sets) you get , likely from china (or screwfix etc.) lots come in fully glued boxes. most are ply , but some are solidwood.
Obviously, if fully varnished / sealed .. they "shouldn't" move

if it's small enough would folded leather be ok for hinges ? ads a nice touch when done properly :-)
