Start this box generally following Andy’s blog.
Used my table saw for the miter cuts and my old shopsmith joint-matic for the router work.
I used masking tape for the glue up and it worked great. I also recessed the bottom rather then cutting a groove for the plywood. Glued it and tacked it on with some new old stock copper nails.
I’ve found some thick ca glue that works great for me so that is another variation. It was completely dry in a few minutes.
