I love your work. Great job.

What I thought I'd do is cover the top of the box with plastic wrap and apply a thick bead of sealer on top of that around the edge and then close the lid. Once it dries it will stay on the lid and provide a seal.
I'm not real concerned with it being waterproof since I can easily put valuables in a plastic bag if I get caught in a monsoon.
The lid was real easy to make an the idea that DSM8 had is still on the burner.
