Beveling And Mitering
: How Work is Laid Out
There is a difference in the terms "beveling" and "mitering," as used in the art. In Fig. 42 the joint A is beveled
, and in Fig. 43 the joint B is mitered
, the difference being that a bevel is applied to an angle joint like a box corner, while a miter has reference to a joint such as is illustrated in Fig. 43, such as the corner of a picture frame.
