It will be fine, the gap is tight enough to catch a .002" feeler gauge all around and the top clicks down closed. Taller inserts would hang up the lid and I would have to relieve them in a way that is worse at the front lip for sealing.

Believe it or not, once of my friends and I have discussed this, he went as far as to have a jeweler make the hardware for one cabinet. Suffice to say it is prohibitively expensive.
Hardware is one of those things that is incredibly expensive to prototype, in terms of labor, and reasobly cheap once produced at some scale....given that it isn't hand wrought copper, which is what I actually want.
