A mitre box is a wood working tool used to guide a hand saw to make precise and fast mitre cuts in a board. The mitrebox is lightweight and portable. It's a good tool for smaller mitring jobs.
Step 1: Tools and materials
A miter box could hardly be simpler, consisting as it does of only three pieces – front, back, and bottom.
You will need:
- about 1 meter wooden board
- hand saw
- square angle tool
- nails or bolts
Cut wooden board into three equal length boards and connect the boards together using nails or bolts.
