I make my mitres on relatively thin wood using the disc sander with the mitre gauge set up accurately. Using this method the lengths can be also be very accurate.
I use "Weldbond" a Canadian made wood glue that goes off quickly and produces a joint that is stronger than the wood. I use a few very thin panel pins to hold the edging strips in place, these can be partly driven in then removed when the glue is set in which case the holes are so small that no filler is normally needed, or of course the pins can be driven in and tapped below the surface with a punch. In the last shot you can see the edging strip on my 1" thick Chipboard removable bench top.
