Miter Your Dovetails
Strong, elegant joinery allows a decorative edge
The joinery in this small dresser mirror combines dovetails and miters in an innovative way. The author explains how to do two versions — a frame joint that has great mechanical strength and is great for small frames that are too thin for a standard mortise-and-tenon joint, and a set of mitered half-blind dovetails that allows for solid case construction with a molded profile around the front.
