Re: how to build a box???

I have printed and read this article like six times and I am getting ready to start building. My question for those that have already built boxes- What angle did you set your saw on to cut the top and bottom sides of the box?

The article just says use an angle cut and to estimate by using your eyes. I am not a carpenter so I don't trust my eyes on this one. What angle have people found works best? Assuming a 20 in box.

Any help is appreciated.

10-15 degrees works great.

Lincoln is the man - those boxes rock. Built at least 10 of them by myself!
