When I miter the joints they were tight, only thing I can figure out with the high heat it made the wood shrink, or edges cruel up, what I don't get is I had glue oozing out of the joints when I glued it up, this is the first time it happen, I took a few out of the shop and let them cool down in the yard in shade to see if they will close back up. it may be just a wood thing,
