Adjustements made during this phase:
* The entire box disassembled in order to install the shim.
* Shim was cut from pre-existing plastic materials 1/8" thick.
* Shaved more material off of the slots in the outer box where drawers are inserted to reveal pressure and make room for the shim.
* The box was then reassembled.

Lid Subsystem

Adjustments made during this phase:
The PVC piping was cut too short when cutting the 45 degree angles.
There were significant gaps in the lid.
Decided to scrap this material and purchase new PVC piping. Material will be more lightweight, smaller in size, and possible more easy to work with.
