This is a 2nd attempt at a previously posted box. Same dimensions but 2 inches taller, and with i.m.o. much better proportioned dovetails. Bottom is 1/4” ply rebated into sides (photo #4).

It happened to the the perfect length for holding 12” ebay clamps, so that’s it’s current temporary function. It is 9-1/2” wide. I really should have made it 9 or 9-1/4, so that 1×10 stock could be used for a lid…next one I guess.
