Cut the stiles, then the rails

Cut the stiles, then the rails

Step 2: Attach a spacer block near the front of the fence with double-faced tape, and lock the fence where the distance between the block and blade equals the stile length A. Cut the stiles, re-adjust the fence, and cut the rails B.

Success secrets: Because the workpiece slides free of the fence-mounted spacer block before you cut, there's little danger of kickback. Cut your longest frame parts (usually the stiles) first. Why? If you make a measurement mistake, you can reuse the miscut piece for the shorter rails.
