Hey guys, I’m getting ready to build a humidor and I wanted to use some of my coco bolo. I was thinking of rabbeting all sides, top, bottom, edges and inlaying the coco bolo. I am trying to figure out the easiest way to cut the 3 point miter, where the corners of the box meets. Can anyone give advise on how to do this? Thanks in advance.

Eric

Did you ever figure this out? What do you mean by a 3 point mitre? Are you trying to miter the left, right and bottom all into one joint?

Yes, I did figure it out….check out my humidor project. It was actually very easy. You cut the miter, then flip the piece 1/4 turn and cut another miter to make a sharp point. do this with all 3 pieses and they come together perfect.

Ahhh, cool. Glad it worked out. Now that I see it I understand what you were looking for…a bit too late I guess.
