tops and bottoms

left to my own learning devices I both do and don’t jump right in, following a wild hair rather than instructions willing to live with what I do and don’t learn
things is if you have no idea then you don’t really learn anything because somehow there is nothing to pin it to, nothing to contextualize with, so starting with some not so vague idea about bottoms, sides, tops and how they will or won’t fit together, and how corners might be supported or hidden might be covered or not and oh yes, what to measure and what to glue and inside or out, here is what I didn’t and did learn about making a box
well that didn’t fit so well, so tried again,
and though it didn’t exactly work out like they were soup and sandwich it was as if they were made for each other and of course fact is I couldn’t have gotten such a good fit I’d tried!
and now comes the learning. and the practice. not to mention the rigors of cutting square things which are supposed to fit squarely.
