Made a box and tried using dye like Joe Landon (trifren) Got a long way to go to get to his level. But, when I cut the lid off, I found a problem with the saw. Got some work to do to get that thing fixed. You can see the runout on the corner. Like that on all 4. Sure wish I had a magic wand… Oh well. Guess it just part of the “fun”

Don’t think it’s the fence Dan. I cut this using a sled…didn’t use the fence. I ordered a digital gage to check but, I think it’s going to be an adjustment at the trunion

My first guess is if both ends are shallow like this corner shown the box tipped or something moved between cutting the sides as opssosed to cutting the ends or sawdust between your stop and the work piece. If the cut is tappered, corner low step high then corner low step high something is missaligned. And all this depends upon how you cut it , like side side then end end or one continous cut all the way around. After enlarging the photo and making adjustments to it, it looks like you made a continous cut. When doing this type of cut tape and shims are often necessary to keep things from moving.
My question is why did you finish the box before cutting it?

Attach sandpaper to your bench with double sided tape and sand the cut surfaces until they are co-planer

Joe, that’s what I did. It’s ok now
mtenterprises: I was really interested in doing the finish, or the dying process, more than the box. I decided to cut the lid off and give it to my wife for …whatever she wants. It’s rub on poly…easy to fix.

Even with the sled – I would do the 5 cut test – and see that your sled is truly cutting at 90 degrees.
Runout wouldnt really show in only one cut direction, it would be rough/burning if it were run-out/blade wobble.
I think there is a angle that is out that is giving you a shoulder at each corner.
Take a caliper and measure the box height at each corner, and I think you will see there is a taper in the cutting.
