I am making a large shadow box (4' x 2' 3") using 2x3" cedar. I made the corners mitered and I would like to connect the sides without using screws. My first thought was to use two dowels on each end, however after playing with scrap pieces I've come to realize that it's difficult getting the home made jig stable enough to drill the holes while keeping the corners aligned. Also considered using biscuits but had a rough time cutting on the angle.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
