Table Saw Method for a Locking Miter Joint

The locking miter joint is not for the faint of heart.  But if you are interested in trying one, this video by Shop Built is a great place to start.  Your skills at the table saw will be challenged, so make sure you start with a sharp and squared blade to give yourself the best chance for success.

I have never made one of these joints myself, but I can imagine the triumphant feeling the first time you slip the two sides together and they join perfectly!

As he says, the method is probably not worth the effort unless it is going to be a visible joint.  The locking miter is indeed a strong version of the miter joint, but there are other easier ways to strengthen a miter.
