Tablesaw Miter Jigs

Are you ready for on-the-money miters? Once you build this little beauty, you can rest assured that your miters will always match up.

Cutting accurate 45° miters becomes a whole lot easier with these angled tablesaw-miter jigs. The key, of course, is to lay out the fences with precision while making the jigs. The jig marked R on the drawing fits on the right-hand side of the blade, as shown above left. The jig marked L, shown above right, fits into the miter-gauge slot on the left-hand side of the tablesaw blade. Use either jig for miter-cutting 45° angles. Or, turn the jig marked L end for end, and use that fence when crosscutting at 90°, as shown in the photo above right.
