Thanks for the replies. The back (bottom) will not be glued in but screwed in place. In a rabbett of course. So the dowel idea is not dowels in the endgrain, but rather, after the box is glued up, drill a hole in the edge, centered on the miter from the back and then a dowel glued in the hole. The epoxy bit is very relevant in this case. It would be like a spline but much easier. I’m not sure how I would cut a blind spline in something so narrow. And if I did do a blind spline, it would have to be rounded to accommodate a table saw kerf, correct?
