I would like to know the answer to what seems like a simple question about compound mitering, but I feel a bit dumb having to ask it. I have checked the faqs on compound miters but cannot find anything but information about crown molding, which isn’t my issue. If you know of a good reference source that will answer my question, please post it here. Your responses are appreciated.
Here’s the question:
I’m not building a church, just a scrap bin with a beveled lid. I want to put a strip of trim around the carcass just under the lid on three sides (not the hinge side), but I haven’t figured out how to make these corners match up. Someone out there must know how. Help, please!
...or does it work only in churches?
