comment Why are “Wire Nuts” not used in the UK?
Do you have a source that wire nuts significantly weaken the wire? Also, are you saying that every time a new resident moves into a building that an electrician dismantles the outlets, individually tests all the wires, and rewires everything? You can't just use a receptacle tester?

comment What type of joint should I use while building a plywood box?
@Craig, A router table would help with the accuracy of the miters. See my recent edit. You could also do this with a simple 45° chamfer bit instead of a lock miter and still use the blocking. The corners might get a bit tricky with that lock miter as well - that part's hard to visualize. You might have to try it on some scrap wood to get it right before moving on to your final workpiece.
