I want to do a variation on this. I have a case that has mitered corners and I want groove the corner and put in an inset of different wood. It’s like one wide spline. I may or may not run it all the way through like in the pic. I might stop it at either end before the end of the case. Sort of like this.

But I don’t know what to call this joint. I’d like to search it for ideas and comments but I’m coming up with nothing.

What would you call it? Thanks.

I would call it corner banding.

Heck if I know. Beaded lock miter? Lock miter with corner molding? It looks nice, no matter what you call it.

It’s similar to a “binding ledge” used in
guitar construction.

That’s what you call covering your butt when your lock miter cutter tears out. DAMHIKT

Alaska Guy, that’s awesome, thanks!

Any tips or thoughts on the process? Thanks again. Could you post a pic of a close up of the detail? Maybe a corner? Thanks.

No need to. I don’t do musical instruments and I can’t see myself ever doing that again.

I build that and 2 matching end tables back in 2003 for a guy at my work place. He saw them in some magazine and asked me to build them. I no longer have access to them. My old pictures are not very good but I’ll post what I have.

All I did was take a 1/4 by 1/4 cut taken out of the corners with a dado blade and glued in the contrasting pieces. The top has turn bread board ends.

That is why we have a quote feature, so we don’t have to pay attention. Why else wood we have a quote feature?
