I’ve made several mitered boxes over the years. To allow for wood movement the lid panels float in dadoes cut inside the box sides. Pretty standard procedure and seems to work well.
I’m about to make several very small ring boxes no larger than 3 inches square. Some will be mitered and some will be made from a solid block bored out with a forstner bit. The lids will be the same species of wood on some of the boxes and a different species on others.
I’m wondering if I can glue the 1/4 inch thick tops and bottoms directly on the box frames. Would expansion of such small parts still be a concern?
Thanks in advance for your input.
