Mitred Halving Joint (a.k.a. Mitred Half Lap, Lapped Mitre Joint....)

Another joint for you. This time a mitred halving joint.



Another way to reinforce a simple mitre joint. The half lap is only visible from one edge, and so in many cases could be orientated so as not to be seen, yet it's superior joint strength (over that of a simple mitre) should hold up well in many applications.
