I made my own braket feet for a chest but am not real happy with how they came out. I don’t have a band saw or a drum sander so all is with a saber saw and sand paper.
The miter joints came out good as I have a miter saw. The question is if I use glue blocks do I still have to use biscuits in the miter joint? I am somewhat ok with biscuit joints on flat pieces but have never done 45 degree joints. I have seen pictures of splines but have no idea of how to cut the mortise. Is this better than biscuits?
The second question is there a source where one can buy ready made bracket feet?
