I'll miter these tomorrow, and get the frame glued up/nailed. This one will get 2 licence plates from one of the matched pairs.

These are great---even if the cuts aren't perfect the box will come out perfectly square once it's glued up---I got them decades ago to build picture frames and display cases.

That looks like a handy method.  I could use some help getting my boxes square.  It's harder than some folks seem to think.
