This is my second attempt at a box with mitered corners. I think my first attempt was better. I did post a forum topic asking for help on miters and got some excellent suggestions. Next time I might try the router method. Anyway this is a box to hold vintage video games, my daughter likes the old Super Nintendo games. It’s maple with a walnut top, finished with two coats of BLO. Reckon I’ll keep practicing; next time I want to try adding splines to the joints. Oh yeah, had a bit of a disaster with the hinges. I was going to put some wide hinges on the back, but when I put the screws in it they just twisted right off. Those are the extra screw holes around the one hinge in the back. I do have an easy-out but I doubt I’d be able to get these screws out so I just left them in.
