Default Box joints with a groove

I have a project that calls for a 1/4" groove to accept a 1/4 ply back in a 10x13 frame that uses box joints. I cut the groove before I cut the 4 individual pieces. After cutting the 4 sides I tried to cut the box joints. I clamped two boards together accounting for the off set, made the cuts... and realized I didn't account for the groove.

Please enlighten me, I'm going to scale the project down by 1" and give it another shot and I'd like to do it right.

I woke up this morning and it hit me... the groove's should face each other when clamped up.

Learning from mistakes makes us way better wood workers, or we build bigger fires ... I like both depending on the time of year
