Do you prefer an Innie or an Outie?

There are different way to make a box and we all have our preferred way of turning them.

QOTW: Do you prefer the lids on your boxes to fit over the tenon or inside the tenon? Which is easier for you to turn and how do you chuck them to get a good fit and look?

Please attach photos if you wish

Small boxes and needle cases I prefer tenon on the base fitting into the lid. On larger boxes I prefer the Raffin style loose tenon on the lid with lid overhanging the base. I screw mount the base first, shape the outside and make a recess 2/3 the diameter of box about 1/8" deep, then reverse to hollow the inside. The lid gets screw mounted to put a chuck tenon on top, reverse and create box tenon fit and overhang, done the inside of lid and create a recess grove to fit perfect circle for chuck so no marks when expanding into it, then reverse to finish the outside and handle, most boxes I make have integral handle although recently I have been considering adding finial type handles. My box preferences have been influenced, style and form - Richard Raffin, mechanics and mounting by Terry Golbeck.

Prefer the lid on outside. I feel I have better control of fit.

I prefer the lid over a tenon on the box.

I know many woodturners teach to make lid first, but I prefer to make the body first. This is to better match the shape and size to the body. Then, I use the lid to jamb chuck the body to finish the bottom and possibly refine the shape a bit.  I then hollow the bottom of the lid, often turn a decorative bead at the join, and finally, turn another jamb chuck to finish off the top.

So except for hollowing the bottom and for the underside of the top, everything is jamb chucked.

+1.  I also agree with Tony - make body first, then lid.
