As you may be able to see from the pictures I have to miter side trim to the front trim. The side trim is 3/8 inch wide and the front trim is 1 and 1/8 wide. The closeup pic is fuzzy but shows you the outline. The second pic gives a description. The front piece is wider because a door will overhand the back end such that the width of the reveal is same as side trim. My question is how to cut the miter – I know how to on the side piece but not on the wider piece – if I do it with a table saw – since the blade is circular, a stopped miter partway into that piece will not leave a seamless fit at the end of the miter. I cannot imagine doing this with a bandsaw since I can’t get that accurate with my bandsaw cutting a straight line. But maybe that is the only method? The other idea I had is miter the same width front and side (3/8 inch) and the just cut a rectangle and join it to the mitered pieces but I am concerned again with producing more lines that could be visible. The trim will be ebonized wood. I have never seen this before so if you know what to do please comment.
