This was my first attempt at mitered corners and it was a success! There's always room for improvement but the fiance was happy

How to do this project

First I determined the dimensions I wanted to box to measure. I cut four pieces accordingly. Then took my miter saw and mitered the ends of all 4 pieces.

I then went to my table saw and cut dados on all 4 pieces for the plywood bottom to slide into (like a drawer). I assembled 3 of the 4 sides and slid the the plywood into the slots and secured it with my 4th piece to complete the box.

I measured the dimensions of the box and laminated 3 1x4s together to make the lid. Then took my belt sander tonite until there were to highspots.. sealed everything with teak oil, installed the hinges and lock and voila!
