I HAVE BEEN IN CARPENTRY FOR 20 ODD YRS. I HAVE NOT FOUND A EASY AND ACCURATE WAY TO MAKE MITER CUTS SHARPER THAN 45 DEGREE ANGLE IN WIDE LUMBER. (2X8, 2X10, 2X12). DO YOU NO OF ANY METHOD OF DOING THIS IN ORDER TO GET A CLEAR AND ACCURATE CUT?

I'm not sure exactly what you mean. Like are the 45s on the edges or on the flat, or are they compound? A power miter box should do the trick on smaller pieces but a jig for a table saw can also be used for larger ones. If I'm off base here let me know so we can try a different tack.........Mark Hammond

Sawdust..........

I like to use a circular saw and a homemade jig........a piece of plywood about 6" wide and 16" long and a solid wood cleat .......screwed together like a 'fixed' bevel gauge.......

The cleat butts against the edge of the board and the plywood lays on the face of the board........the saw motor overhangs the plywood and the saw base rides along the plywood edge.........extend the cleat long enough for the saw to 'cut' off the excess cleat and it will indicate the exact cut line for that saw and that blade at that angle......doug
