Simplified Three-Way Miter

A modern approach to a traditional Chinese joint creates striking corners on small tables and stands

by

Although there probably are a dozen or more ways to cut a three-way miter, Richard Gotz uses a method that is straightforward and relies on only a few cuts with power tools. This type of joint, which dates to the Ming dynasty, is often used in light-duty furniture and makes a striking appearance. The author calls it deceptively simple looking, but his explanations help make it seem simple to build, too.
