I am looking to build a table with an open mitered corner box top. I am basically trying to get it to look like one of those floating box wall shelves, like this, except with legs.
Obviously, all the dimensions and such would be different, but the picture shows you the basic idea. I feel like there are oodles of stuff on how to cut mitered corners over a joint length of 3 inches or so, like on a regular box. I never recall seeing anyone talk about how to cut a mitered corner over a more substantial distance, like over a distance of 16 to 18 inches. I am thinking I should just make a crosscut sled with the blade tilted to 45 degrees. Any tips on this? I tried to search a little bit, but I can’t figure out if there is a specific way to differentiate these “longer” miters from shorter miters such as box corners. Any help on how you do it or jigs you use would be great.
