I’m going to try and enter my next project into the wood joinery contest. I’m going to try and modify the Rockler music box plan to satisfy the wood joinery requirements. I think the challenge is going to be the sides. So I’m looking for ideas on how to joint the sides. They call for simple miter joints but that won’t work for the wood joinery contest. Please comment with any ideas.

This picture shows a glass front but I’m going to make the version with solid front and sides and a frame and panel top.

How about using a lap joint with dowel pins? Another idea could be to use wedged tenons, although it would not look quite like the picture.

Good luck and let us know what you do.
