BROADER CONCEPT
SCOPE NOTE
  • The two cut edges if the mitered corner do not meet when they are folded over. It is possible for the cut edges of a butt mitre to pull apart slightly on leather covered boards as the leather dries and shrinks.The gap create by this prc ess is typically very narrow (less than 1 mm), and should not be confused with open mitres, which may be anything from 2-5 mm wide.
