Extend your miter gauge

A bare-bones, standard-issue miter gauge benefits from the addition of an extension, a straight scrap of plywood or MDF screwed to the gauge so it extends past the blade. This provides a couple of advantages: A saw kerf cut into the extension, as shown, shows precisely where the blade will cut, and the wood around the kerf provides zero-clearance protection against tear-out.
