As a woodturner, I make segmented turnings almost exclusively.
If you're looking for a mitersaw for your workshop, make it a compound mitersaw and make it a big one. We'll help you decide which one to buy.
Why buy? Mitersaws work hard in the shop and on a job site.
With all the choices in mitersaws these days (sliders and non-sliders alike), a 10" sliding compound mitersaw provides the best combination of accuracy, cut capacity, power, price, and portability.
If you're still using the contractor-grade blade that came with the saw, my first advice is to upgrade to one more suited to woodworking.
Editor Bob Hunter shows you the best safe practices for making cuts on the mitersaw, and how to make superfine trim cuts for a perfect fit.
