I also posted a blog this, but it’s not too exciting. This is my first box with miters on the corners. I learned the hard way that if the blade isn’t exactly 45 degrees you can get three corners to mate up, but the last one is off a bit. I do have a tiny bit of filler in on of the corners. All pine, top and bottom are set in dadoes and are plywood. I went with a modern stain, dark walnut, then BLO then wax. I’ll be using this box at Civil War Reenactments, so I wanted it dark so it wouldn’t stand out too much.
