I’ve done 60-some frames over the years as I’m also a shutterbug. This one’s notable as it was my first go using the Bridge City Tools JointMaker Single Wing. The frame was a replacement for one of my first efforts. At the time it was acceptable as most folks don’t make a point of looking at miter joints.

The thermally treated oak that I like to use at times splinters with power tools. While this is very superficial and easily remedied, one of the charms of a thin kerfed non-motorized tool would be a clean cut. It was very impressive as a first effort to have miters that did not require trimming or sanding to produce clean joints. Here is the composite close up of the new joints:
