In a current projet I would like to use this kind of joinery to build boxes under a desk :

I would cut the bevel on panels with my plunge saw.
But, in order to cut them, I build a small jig to place correctly my plunge saw rail.

This jig permet a first cut at 90° with a table saw and after cut the bevel with the plunge saw without changing the panel width.

You can view it in action in this video. But sorry, it’s in French.

C’est une bonne idée, bien sur! I understand just enough French to get into trouble, but the video was clear in showing how it works.

Nice thinking, Boris.

Great job—an accessory that Festool hasn’t thought of is quite an accomplishment.
