How To Fix A Not So Good Miter Joint

What you need is Wood Glue, Screwdriver, and 200 grit Sandpaper. Carefully widen joint a bit and on the outside corner of joint rub wood glue into joint and use the round long side of screwdriver to rub the two pieces together for a couple of minutes Then when glue gets tacky... start sanding the outside of miter joint to allow the dust to mix with glue, and wolla you will never see the wide open joint no longer. :o
