Ok. My daughter has a frame she wants to put a glass in and use it for a cabinet door. The corners are 45 and she does not want a spline and I have no way to install a biscuit, which I am not sure if either would be strong enough anyway. I have suggested cutting the 45s off and doing a lap joint which at this time is all I could help her with, my tools are in storage. She wants the 45 look so does anyone have any suggestions on making a strong enough joint out of the 45s that might support glass and be a cabinet door. Thanks

You could make a lap joint with a 45 degree face. I would still put some very small dowels thru the face on each side of the 45 for added strength.
