First box made with homemade miter spline jig. Built without a purpose, just to experiment a new (to me) joint.
Splines and bottom made from Black Walnut, frame/sides made from Birch (i think).
finished with two coats of water based poly.

Good job with the splines. I’m thinking it’s a jig for your TS? Looks like it served you well. I really like the bottom too.

i had room for one more picture so i added a pic of the jig. Its far from original. Like many others i ran a google image search and manipulated my results to suit my needs. A little MDF, some scrap 1x, along with a solid tri-square and alittle wax, and “rock n’ roll” i was running this baby down my table saw!.
