How to Check Miter Saw Accuracy
Miters can be a beautiful form of joinery and a symbol of true craftsmanship. For many woodworkers however, both novice and experienced, miter saw accuracy can be an elusive pursuit.

finewoodworkingmagazineTapers on the Miter Saw⠀ by Rob Cairns, Nevada City, CA The short tapers on the bottom of legs are awkward to cut with a tapering jig on the tablesaw, which is designed for longer, 2° or 3° tapers. I solved the problem by making a jig to cut them on my miter saw. The miter adjustment on the saw made it easy to get the correct angle for the tapers. Made from 3/4-in.-thick plywood, the taper jig is essentially a right-angle brace with holes cut on both sides for clamps.
