This is a project I have contemplated over the years...

I haven't yet had time to make a mock up, but I always was curious as to how exactly I would handle and figure out all the angles/mitred cuts so it would go together nicely, especially the joints on the small sides (corners).

Anyone have any experience to share, or does one need to just mock up from cardboard and get out the draw knives!

Actually it can all be worked out mathmetically. I wanted to make a giant thumble, so I drew up some plans and had a teenager take it to his shop teacher. He came back with all the angle cuts that had to be made. Working on a bench saw, special 'jugs' had to be made to guide the wood, but an arm saw would have worked easier.

The knowledge of a cabinet maker would be the best consultant for this type of design.
