    Yeah, you should probably pick a different color background next time. Notice how well the needle-nosed pliers stand out in your picture under step 1? Much better than the Lego pieces do.

    It is still a pretty good idea.  I want to do some things like this for robotics (put light sensors, motors, etc. inside the boxes.)  But to get them to still fit inside a Lego project, you will need to file/shave a bit off of the larger 2X4 piece before you put the bottom on.  It needs to be the same size with the lid, as it is without the lid.  Another possibility is for you to add additional "lid" pieces - I believe that it takes 3 or 4 of the flat pieces to equal the height of the original storage compartment brick.  So, add the right number ( 2 or 3) of the small pieces (or a single additional larger brick, instead of the flat, smaller lid) and it will fit in to your art work (or whatever.)

    Nice write up.  Thanks.
