I need to make a large frame for a hybrid presentation panel, and have decided to use the mitered half-lap for the corners because of its combination of appearance and strength. Problem is, I've never made one before and there are apparently a zillion ways to do it.

I watched the Woodsmith video that describes the table saw method, and went for it. Tried it with some small scrap, just to see what I could do, and, well…it's right ugly. gaps in the miters, overlaps or gaps in the lap portion, noticeably out of square.

This is apparently a joint that takes some practice. Anyone feel like offering some sage advice to a first-timer?
