joining lines that are too long

I am certain I have done this before. Easy example, make a box with four lines but each line is too long. I now have overlapping lines in the corners with little ends dangling beyond. How can I weld the four lines creating the square together and then delete the short excess? 
Thank you all, David

    There are a couple of options one grab the lines on opposite sides and drag down and up to fit.  OR having joined the lines with the squiffy corners create a box and line up and use Boolean to delete the excess.  OR create a box the right size and place where you have your original lines and then delete your lines.  I'd go for the third options as that is the easiest.  If you place your original lines on a different layer and then use the square to create your box on the layer it is intended for you can then just delete the layer with the unwanted lines on. Or you can drop it here and I will make the adjustments for you.

    If you happy to eyeball it in node edit mode you can |you could drag the end of each line so the align the in node edit select the line right click on the end node and choose join to closet node

    if you ocd like me you can use the x ,y, w and h or each line to manoeuvre the ends to make the end be in the same position

    eg
    line a   X 0.567 

    Line B   Y 0.6386



    Set the Y of Line a to the Y of line B

    Set the X of line B to the X of Line A



    Switch to node edit mode
    select line right click end node choose join to closet node


    it gets a little more complicated on the other corners because the w and h of lines need to be included

    I will take a run at these, thank you all. I am making an airplane. Will give it a try.
    I thought that by welding the image together that I could then break it back apart and have the intersections of the lines become node points. I still have a long way to go on it.

    When you weld shapes together it appear nodes are created that the junctions



    If you provide a few images of what you are attempting to do I might have some other option
