Hey Mead
A jigsaw is not a good tool to make miters because jig saw blades tend to flex when cutting so it’s all but impossible to get an angle that will match. almost any tool will miter better,a miter saw, a table saw with sled even a hand saw with a miter box. another thing to keep in mind is that all four sides must exactly the same size or your miters will not mesh properly.
