    I'd say that this is a perfect project for a box joint jig. I don't have a resouce here at the tips of my fingers but I'm sure you could google one up. There are a few commercial jigs available but they're real easy to build, fairly simple to set up, and easy to use once you understand the concept.

      Simple box joints and glue. Look at Woodcraft and you can find slot type hinges that don't use screws.

          Box joint is a good choice...so are through dovetails, or mitered corners with a spline or biscuits. Miter corners with a key spline can be beautiful too.

              Here's a fairly inexpensive jig for making Box Joints. Box Joint Jig

              A few of books that I've found to be very informative when it comes to the table saw are;

              1. The Table Saw Book by Kelly Mehler (ISBN 1-56158-426-6)
              2. Table Saw Majic by Jim Tolpin (ISBN 1-55870-512-0)
              3. Table Saw Tips & Tricks by Kenneth Burton (ISBN 1-55870-623-2)
