I use this miter key jig when building boxes, frames, etc.... anywhere I want to reinforce the miter. Miter keys also provide a nice visual effect. From a 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" hardwood scrap, I created a "cut sampler". This lets me see how high I need to raise the blade to obtain a miter key of a certain length.
