Sliding mitersaw joinery


Saw with Dewalt written on it

Beyond crosscuts, this tool does lots more.

Sliding mitersaws have pretty much replaced radial-arm saws in woodworking shops and job sites thanks to their lower cost, improved accuracy, and portability. Few users realize, though, that these machines also can make partial-depth cuts, such as those in half-lap joints, dadoes, or rabbets. You'll find a slider especially handy when building large outdoor projects made of hard-to-handle, big--and often wet--lumber.

The techniques we'll share here work with either a 10" or 12" sliding compound mitersaw. Before making any cuts, be sure to calibrate your saw's 90 and 45 miter settings using the manufacturer's instructions.
