I want to build an 'old fashioned" coffin. That is it will be made
from pine boards. It will not be rectangular bit will have angled
sides. The head and foot ends will be narrower that it will be at the
shoulders. I estimate the inside angle where the 2 side boards meet
will be 154 degrees. This is almost a butt joint and I am not sure how
to join these boards at this point.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
It's basically the same as any other carcase joint, just opened up a bit
wider. All the usual suspects apply; biscuits, finger joints,
dovetails, miter, etc. These could all be reinforced with a glue block,
and the miter could be reinforced with a spline or multiple keys.

Maybe this book from Rockler?
