I really messed up some boxes I was making by not being careful enough when cutting miters for the sides. Soon after dumping the trashed sides into the dumpster, an article by Doug Stowe appeared in the Nov/Dec 2008 issue of Fine Woodworking Magazine. In it, Stowe describes how he gets his perfect miters by using a shop made crosscut sled of his table saw. “That’s what I need,” I said to myself, so I put one together by following Stowes description and adding a couple of features. I added a T-slot for use with a hold-down clamp and a face board to allow adjustment of the rear rail to be perpendicular to the saw kerf. The accompanying pictures show the result.
