Many kinds of miter boxes are available, but they all perform the same basic function: to assist with cutting on an angle.
The plastic miter box is the most basic type today. It usually has one 90-degree and two 45-degree angle guides. The more traditional wooden miter box typically has the same guides.
The steel-shelf miter box is more complex, with guides on the top, back and front. It has a built-in depth guide and ruler. With this box, the saw can be locked in a variety of angles.
