I do accept that it was a mistake to say Thumbling. It sounds the same…. here is the beautiful look after the miter joint (Martyn … Thanks for the technique). Apparently, there were two obvious mistakes I have done:
1) the bevel cut (90 deg) using a portable router was overcut creating a thorough cut that even the masking tape underneath was cut. It is not that the router was adjusted wrongly but the wood board uneven thickness. It is still good.
2) the top is slightly uneven, it is better to hinge this lid because you cannot rotate the lid as it will not fit.

Till next time.

Thanks for viewing.
