Box Joint

A box joint is often seen on the corners of small boxes or drawers, as it is very easily made using machinery and power tools. The side of the gluing area is approximately the same as for a dovetail, so if a modern adhesive is used, where the glue is stronger than the wood, the strength will be about the same for both joints. It is usual to make all the pins the same thickness, with the same distance between them.
