Splines are one more step in the process, but I have decided they’re worth it in ease of glue-up in making the miters fit perfectly with less clamping. The peace of mind that I’ve strengthened the joint is worth something. Most folks actually like the look of the spline because it shows it’s hand made.

The bigger the box, the more I’d lean toward using the splines.
