As a rookie on woodworking cuting straight isnt one of my strong points, so the miter/mitre box was created!!! I made it from spares, its just two bigger pieces one on each side that I glued and screwed to the bottom, later I aded a piece of acrylic to make it more stable (I ended up changing the place of the acrilic, it was over the cuts). This box is primarly for smaller pieces of wood and making the perfect cuts on the corners of picture frames but it also works with steel pieces.

Good Job, Helder. I find most mitre boxes too confining, that’s why I prefer a mitre block.
