Question Pool Cue Cases

Good evening everyone,
I am new to this forum and somewhat new to woodworking. I am currently building wood Cue Stick Cases from Oak. Here's my issue, after building the rectangular box, I turn it on its side and cut the top halve from the bottom halve. When I do this the top and bottom (now separated) curve a little. Not much, but maybe 3/32 over the 34" long box top. When I hinge it along the rear with a piano hinge, the back becomes straight, and then some of the curvature comes out but not entirely. I like the top to completely close with no gaps.

Any suggestions wood be helpful!

You can't build it as one piece and then cut it, especially with oak. Oak moves a lot when ripped. Proper technique would be to use a jointer to get two pieces that are perfectly straight that are each half the total thickness and build each half separately.

The tools don't make the craftsman....
