Ok, Got some more done onthese Arlin Joints
   
Laid out...
   
Chopped out....and..
   
Dry fitted.   Managed to get all four corners dry fitted today...
   

So, after a bit of fine tuning on the mitres, I might get out the tools and make a box out of this mess..


Have seen the Underhill  version of the secret dovetail joint, and even tried to do a few...long while ago.....once was quite enough.
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Good job Bandit I like it.  It gives a lot more glue space and the edges will not slip.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Hi, I'm Arlin's proud wife! His brain trma & meds-give memory probs and has pain from injuries, but all is well materially & financially.

Have the box in the clamps, right now.   Had size two plywood panels for a test fit
   
I used a plane to round over the top's edges
   
And then try to get it all clamped up and square...
   
with a diagonal clamp to pull things into square
   
Will let this mess sit overnight.   Then see how it turns out. 
   
BTW:  Since the cuts on the plywood panels were less than straight, I used a Junior Jack plane to "joint" the edges.
