The Family Handyman
To cut frame moldings faster, build this plywood miter gauge. You won’t have to adjust to a conventional miter fence for opposite end cuts—just flip it around and make the next cut.
To build one, cut a 3/4-inch plywood triangle with a 90-degree corner, and screw on a hardwood strip from below for the miter slot. Attach the strip with one screw first, adjust the plywood to the blade at 45 degrees, then drive in the second screw. Kudos to reader Paul Clifford for this great tip.
