Tools and Materials Required:
Six pieces of wood cut to the exterior dimensions of your cube
Scrap M.D.F. cut the length of your rip fence
Blue painters tape
Step 1: Setting Up the Fence
Place one of your pieces of wood against the M.D.F. and draw a line at the top of your material.
Step 2: Setting Up the Saw
Turn the saw on, and push the fence into the blade until the top tooth is fully inside the sacrificial fence. Adjustment may be required, so feel free to turn the saw off and check for proper alignment.
Setting the saw in this position will allow you to remove the perfect amount of material from your wood to produce a miter cut. It will also greatly reduce any tear out on plywood or other veneered lumber.
