Today while in a waiting room, I noticed a picture frame which used bridle and miter combo jointery. I suppose this gives the appearance of a miter joint but improves the gluing surface available.

This seems like a rather tricky joint. Has anyone done this?

Seen, never tried. Looks tricky, I have done lots one way or the other, but never together. Too mamy chances to make a mistake for a hack like me.

Was it really a mitered bridle joint or was it a miter joint with a big spline? Pics?

cr1 – Thanks for posting that link. Don’t you think putting a spline in the miter joint would be a LOT quicker and serve the same purpose? I’ve done this using the same jig that I use to do splines on my boxes. I’m all about keeping it as simple as possible.
