Miter-gauge extension

Stopblock on your miter-gauge extension provides a simple, foolproof way to crosscut multiple parts to equal length without measuring each one. But what if you're cutting extra-long parts, such as table legs? In that case, clamp on a long-part stopblock like this one.

Start by attaching an MDF or plywood miter-gauge extension to your miter gauge. Make it at least 1" wider than the thickness of your workpieces and long enough to reach from just past the blade on one end to 6" or so past the end of the miter gauge on the other end. Mount it to your saw's stock miter gauge, and cut a kerf that marks the blade position.
