Depends Depends material the worktop I made out of... I'm struggling to see where a mason miter is possible on a worktop join since I mason miter generally describes the groove that I cut after something is assembled leaving endgrain exposed particularly on internal doors... it was seen as very bad practice years ago but a lot of people do it now. I believe it was intended for picture frames where no endgrain would show since it would have mitered corners already...

I base y reply on what that phrase means in wiltshire UK

In my personal opinion it's certainly a bad idea... However sometimes in the past I've done things I consider bad practice because the customer insists so...
