They slipped with something and they slipped so quick it ran off course doing damage before they could stop it.

Or

Somehow, slowly sawing, it slipped off course, they carried on, and then three days/weeks later they noticed.

Or

They deliberately sabotaged the box that they'd just spent 1000's of hours hollowing out.
(they deliberately didn't notice for three weeks).

Question

Why did they start to cut the lid from the box as the last operation?
Why did they try to make the lid from the base of the box?
Why did they try to make the lid from the same piece of rock?
