hey everyone, does anyone have a video or possibly instructions on how to make the perfect rabbet with miter…final project is a grandfather clock and my corner joinery (which was chosen for me) happens to be this joint. project is being done in cherry, and i only have one shot at doing it right… i thought i had really good instructions from a book or mag. but can’t seem to locate it anywhere…no pressure but the sooner the better…( was hoping to do some practice tonight. thanks guys and dolls.

Can you cut the rabbett before you cut the miter?

Is this on an insde edge or outside edge of a panel or frame? If outside, you could just go ahead and glue then use a stacked dado blade or router/guide afterwards. If inside, a router rabbeting bit then squareing up the corners with chisels works well, but Slacker’s idea would be easier.

I’m assuming you already figured it out but if you haven’t I’ve got instructions
