This sort of thing is hard to do even if you have done it loads before so I am glad at how clean the mitre came up...

I have always looked in awe at your mitres Mr Devine, especially that stuff round the side and end grafts - much more masterful than the one shown above! I feel a bit proud of this because my eyesight is so poor at present - I need to go to the optomiterist to have em tested next week since close up work is getting impossible!

Judging by that mitre I'd say your eyesight is fine:)

Very nicely done! Dealing with old eyes myself, I can't help but appreciate that joint.
