    top of box isnt sitting even with edges...

    Ok. I built a box for my 15" XXX and when i was done i put it in my trunk but it didnt fit. So i took off the top peice of MDF and took 2" off the top with a jig saw. My cutting wasnt the best so the top doesnt sit flush with the rest of the box. And if i try to sand it, i dont think it will come out how i want. Would this effect the purpose of my box? Did this juss screw up everything? should i just put caulking around the whole top and just put the top on and screw it so that theirs no uneven parts?

    I'd use Gorilla Glue to fill in those gaps. It will not only fill in the gap, but also bond the wood together, not as strong as wood glue, but it's better than nothing.

    Do you think this would effect the box?

    its probably not gonna be as strong as a straight edge to edge, but im sure it will hold if you use gorilla glue and liquid nails

    if you use a belt sander you can get it decently level

    why not fill it up with wood filler?

    if it was me i'd just start over, i don't think you'll ever reach the kind of strength you'll need if the cuts are as bad as they sound.
