This isn't the first knife stip rodeo, but it does warrant a new post as it is a recent commission that I received. For the sake of the new buyer, I wanted to do a special post for their new knife strip and detail a little about the material and to say a few things about caring for the material.

|In a stunning development, the lead picture for a post on miter joints is of a miter joint!|
"Oh my will he end the suspense and talk about the miter joints already."
Sure. Since you asked nicely.

|Do not zoom in if you have Trypophobia|
I glue wood together all the time. I don't really like nails or screws that are visible. Sure you can plug a screw hole or put wood fill into a nail hole, but you can see that something is there. I think you can use plugs in a stylistically positive way, but only if you set out to add that to your design.
Gluing wood face-to-face has challenges, edge-to-edge is common, but anything-to-end grain presents a challenge...
