Instructions and Help about Form 8815 Jointly

Music in this video. I want to show you a technique that I find pretty valuable. It's not something I've seen used very often before, but I keep using it again and again and it's quite helpful. Right now, I'm working on making some caps for a Newell staircase railing. This is a completed cap off a railing that I made. I don't know, six or seven years ago. This fits on top of a solid wood with panels in it, so it just kind of sits over top. This is an obscure project and you're probably not going to have to do work like this, but the technique is quite universal. So, I want you to look at this section here. This is a one-inch diameter bullnose profile, and it comes from this frame here. So, this frame sits below a pyramid cap like this, and then there's trim on the sides and trim on the bottom, and that's what creates this Newell cap. But what I want to show you now is how I assemble and reinforce these joints. Now, in this case, this frame is only going to be seen along the edge, so I'm not concerned about what happens on the top and bottom. And at least visually, what I am concerned about is how these joints fit together. They need to be nice and tight on the outside corners, and that's what we've got here. Now, the way I do this is by cutting the parts at a 45-degree angle, and I assemble them with glue only. There are no biscuits or dowels or any sort of reinforcement inside. And this approach lets me adjust these miter joints so they fit really well. The glue is holding them together, but the glue alone is not strong...
