David, the boxes that I want to make would have tops that are about the size of a standard sheet of printer paper – 8-1/2×11 and maybe in the neighborhood of 6 in. deep. I’m assuming that what you are saying is using the side of the plane guided by a fence that is forty-five degrees to the face and perpendicular to end of the box side. Would you use a spline joint on the miter? And if so would it would you use a linear spline or a crosscut spline? If you didn’t want to accentuate the crosscut splines I would assume you would just use the same wood for the splines as the box (basswood or butternut since box is chip carved).
