Summary

My wife was looking for a box for her desk so students could put found Lego pieces into it. This is a 3.5x scale box of a 2x4 brick.

UPDATE: I noticed the files took a long time to slice. I modified the OpenScad files to reduce the number of faces ($fn) on the edge radiuses from 60 to 16. Due to the small size of the radiuses, this is impercetabile in the print, but greatly sped up slicing and also reduced files sizes.

Instructions

Print all three pieces. On the underside of the box top, glue the box top insert piece. I prefer using clear cleaner meant for priming ABS, CPVC, and PVC for glue (Oatey #30782). This holds the printed ABS very well, just don't use a lot. It is available in most any home improvement store in the plumbing section. I centered the insert on the underside of the top and used mini spring clamps to hold the parts together. I also placed narrow pieces of metal on the top side under the clamps to flatten the little bit of curling in the to piece.
The parts were modeled in OpenSCAD. This is one of my first parts built from scratch and I am sure it could be cleaned up. Still getting used to all the features of this program.

btw- The ABS cleaner also does a great job of finishing a part. Because it is a solvent, it reduces any ridges, fades the print lines, and gives the part a shine, even if it had been sanded.
