:a gentle disclaimer... in these litigious days, it's easy to lose sight of the fact that we, as a community of kindred souls, once valued common sense. So cast back in your memory to that long-forgotten concept, focus all your mental faculties on the electric power tools and sharp blades in front of you and embrace the fact that we take no responsibility for any mishap experienced by you because your attention may have wandered. That said, be joyous, use all your wood scraps and add to the sum total of beauty in this world.

Glue on box side. Hot melt glue is good here. I like to work fast.

The edges of the box side have been slightly cut in with the bandsaw to give the look of corner stones. You can off-center the box side a bit from the box body to define differences in surfaces.
