A Joint that is as Beautiful as it is Strong!


I love dovetails, especially hand cut dovetails. I love how they look and I especially love how strong they are. However, sometimes the grain in wood is so beautiful that I would rather see it wrap around a joint as opposed to being broken up by dovetails. So while thinking of a way to strengthen a mitered joint I came up with the idea of the half mitered dovetail. I don’t want to claim that I am the first person that has ever done this, but I can find no record of this joint anywhere. That may be because it is called something else and I am unaware of the correct name. If so please message me as I would love to learn more about this joint. In my mind this is a great joint that combines the beauty of dovetails and waterfall grain while simultaneously giving you a decently strong joint.
