A friend asked me to make a simple wooden box in which he could bury his Min-Pin. I had short notice, but I couldn’t just make a plain box. I decided to make the lid a little casket-like. This was my first attempt at a mitered frame and panel lid. I cut the miter joints on the table saw with my Super Accurate Crosscut Sled. The bevels were cut with the tenon jig on the table saw. All joints were dowel-reinforced. Cove molding was store-bought. Finish is spray polyurethane.

I mixed up the sequence of the frame pieces during glue-up. Fortunately, the miter cuts were close enough to not matter.
