Do you have a small piece of furniture or picture frame to build? If you want stronger miter corners in your woodworking, then using splines to join the two ends together will secure them better than mere miter joints.
Aside from an aesthetic viewpoint, the mitered corner is made more durable and inseparable with the square-shaped splines in the middle of two 45 degree beveled edges.
There is a neat look to it because the ends fit so perfectly that they look so natural, except for the odd-colored spline. A table saw and a router table are all you need to cut the ends finely.
