Lock Miter vs. Spline vs. Biscuits
I have a follow-up question to my past post on the Bedpost Glue-Up.
When creating the miters on the post (four faces, mitered to a 3" square, filler block down the center, would method would you use to strengthen the migher joint? The options are:
1) Lock Miter Bit (have heard this is a difficult bit to set up and use effectively, but makes a strong joint when done right)
2) Hardwood Spline
Which would be the easiest, while providing enought mechanical strength, knowing these are bedposts?
