Cutting the mitersSean Jun 07, 2016
Cutting The Parts Oversize
Even though the final length of the pieces are 6" and 10", I like to cut my pieces a little long and use a stop block for consistency. This makes sure that even if my piece isn't exactly 6 inches long, the second box side will be cut to the same exact length. I cut the 6" pieces to 6 1/4" and the 10 inch pieces to 10 1/4".
Mitering at the Table Saw
With the pieces cut long, I miter one end of the board and then mark out 6 inches on the other end. I then line up the 6" mark against my the kerf in my fence and setup a stop block. Once I cut this side to size, I line the second box side up against the stop block and take it down to size as well.
