Arbor Swing Help?

blakeasJuly 3, 2009

I am trying to make these 4X4 trim pieces - But using my mitre saw I keep on getting them to turn out different with different slopes. How do I do i correctly?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

These look like blocks just cut off squarely??

Can you post photos of two blocks with "different slopes?" I'm not quite picturing what you're talking about.

In general, if you push the length of wood against the saw's fence, you'll get a square cut. Unless the wood is bowed.
