Need to be able to cut accurate miters on smaller moldings and strips and I didn’t have a decent solution, so I made one. Took me a few minutes to figure out how to make it accurate, but it finally occurred to me (see pic #2). Perspective provided by screw head.
Square up a block. Cut a wide (7/8” or so) groove with a dado blase on a table saw as deep as the blade on your preferred saw(s) (e.g. dozuki). Strike an accurate 45 degree angle across the block, one left, one right. put a guide tight on the line (I used 1/2” MDF) put the blade against it and lock it in with the other guide) Saw away. Flip it, lather, rinse, repeat etc…
