I’m nearing completion of an end table/display table for my brother-in-law. It’s basically an end table that will have glass sides and top. I ran into some trouble mitering the top as you can see in the pics. I made a miter sled that I thought was set to cut perfect miters. Small scrap pieces came out fine. But when I used it to cut the larger table top, I end up with a gap on the fourth corner. Three of the corners are tight and square. But it leaves a gap in the one corner (lower right in the pic). I guess the sled is a bit off and that error becomes more apparent with larger pieces. Two pieces of glass (20” X 11 7/16”) with a wood strip down the center will make the top. I already have the glass so everything needs to be straight and square to fit around it correctly.
Any ideas how I can fix this last corner? I used my Incra miter gauge to make a slight 46 degree cut which closed it up some. I don’t want to screw it up by cutting it more. Seems like it’s too big to fill with putty or glue/sawdust.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
