Setting up perfect miter cuts can be time-consuming. With a miter sled, you do it only once, when building the sled.

Cut the pieces for the miter sled to the dimensions shown in Drawing 1. After attaching the miter-slot guides (adjust width for your saw table), put the jig on the tablesaw and cut a kerf 712 " into the base. Then follow the steps in Drawing 2, and use double-faced tape to temporarily attach the fences.

Test your setup by miter-cutting four pieces to identical length and dry-fitting them together as a frame. Check for a tight joint at all four corners. If needed, adjust the fences. Then screw them down in their final positions.
