You want to chamfer the corners of some small pieces of stock using your tablesaw. Your fingers would end up uncomfortably close to the blade, though.

Construct the jig shown from 14 " plywood and scrapwood. Size the base according to the stock you'll be cutting and the distance between the saw's miter gauge and blade. Square one end to one side, and then attach cleats to the square corner with glue and brads. Be careful not to put metal fasteners into the cutting line. Clamp the jig to the miter gauge. Cut the corner off the jig, adjusting the position to achieve the desired angle on test stock. Then, cut your project parts safely and securely.
