    The basic box building series continues with mitered spline joinery, attachment of the lid, and applying a super-simple finish.

    I'm also interested in the spline jig plans. Nice looking feature that adds great strength to the project. One could put this technique to work in a number of other projects.

    I noticed Mr Ruhlmann did not finish the bottom or the inside of the box. Is this common practice?
