I made this gift box as my entry to Sterling Davis Youtube channels Pallet Upcycle challenge 2015.I think It turned out nice and enjoyed making it.I used mitres on the corners for the first time and since I have no table saw to make splines I used dowels as splines.I finished the box with danish oil and used left over hardware from other projects like hinges and clasps so the project cost almost nothing. I made a video of the process please thumbs up share & subscribe Thank you!

Your use of the dowels, in the corners, is really neat!

Excellent box. Those metal parts take this box on higher lever. Nice thing you’ve done with dovels on corners.
