This woodworking tutorial features the mitre joint. If you’ve done carpentry or woodworking there probably was a time or two that the mitre joint was a challenge. This video shows how the mitre joint can be cut and fit with great accuracy, done safely, and with ease by using a mitre sled on the tablesaw.
What if you could take your wood projects to another level? Now you can. You can feel comfortable cutting one mitre or hundreds of mitre joints as the mitre sled method ensures accuracy and efficiency.
Note: Prior to the demonstration of building the picture frame a new Forrest Woodworker II sawblade was installed on the tablesaw. A Wixey digital angle gauge was used to calibrate the sawblade to ensure it would be set at 90 degrees and perpendicular to the tablesaw bed.
Ulimia spring pinch clamps were used to hold the mitres together during glue-up. These clamps are invaluable as they provide adequate pressure to hold the mitre joint. Simply find a place on your woodworking bench, glue and align the joints, and open and close the pinch clamps. It’s that easy.
