my box has some imperfections by the wood not lining up perfect do to the fact i'm not that "nice" with a circular saw to get all the lengths perfect due to the blade,ect. so i was wondering what could i use fix these. i was thinking about bondo but i was wondering if theres any other alternatives. fucntionally the box should be fine since everything is right internally but i'm just worried about cosmetics.

a sander would work at smoothing out joints.

yup, a sander would do good. if you don't have one nor want to get one, buy some low grit (20-60grit) sandpaper with a sanding block... $5 for the sanding block, $3 for the sandpaper.

it would do well if you're off by like 1/4 or less.

yep. and if you need to fill the gaps between the wood because it wasnt a 90 degree cut, just get some wood glue, and mix it with some sawdust and cram it in the gap.. then let it dry, and then sand it down with 20~60 grit on a sandingblock :)

this mixture also works well at filling in screw holes.

good luck
