The sides of this box are joined with simple miter joints strengthened by adding keys made easily with a tablesaw jig. These project plans will not only show you how to construct the box, but give you hints on utilizing grain patterns, show you techniques for cutting a perfect miter, and making quick jigs. In this 18-page excerpt, you'll learn how to build a lap-cornered box of quilted and spalted maple. In this free chapter download from his most recent book, Basic Box Making, Stowe shows you how to build a beautiful lap-cornered box of both quilted and spalted maple.

The great thing is that if the box were subjected to extremes resulting in a loose bottom from significant expansion and contraction it would be much easier to fix than it was to make in the first place.
I would consider this box to be at the upper limit of size in which this technique might be suitable. And there is perhaps no FW contributing author with as wide a variety of boxes under his belt as Doug Stowe. I have other simple techniques illustrated in the book that could be used on this box if a person was particularly concerned about shrinkage and expansion. My own shop and wood storage conditions are on the slightly damp side of the scale, so I tend to build tight with the expectation that the wood might shrink slightly when subjected to extremes of heating and air conditioning. Build too tight, and you can have the wood pushing the box apart at the joints in very wet weather.
