I just had a quick flashback to Trigonometry. If the width of the boards shrinks by 1/4” (1%) from 25” to 24 3/4”, the miter angles will change by about 0.3 deg each. The gap formed would be almost 3/8”.

This agrees with JayT s result above using Sketchup.

Actually, you will probably deduct more points when I show my work!
