You didn’t say what you’ve done about the TS. What kinda lumber are ya gonna use? If the wood is going to be from a borg, well…...I’d let it stabilize a bit before I did any dimensioning. If the wood is pine (which I don’t suggest) it will probably “wiggle” a bunch. The miters will open after cutting.
I’d spend time getting the saw tuned up properly. You should be well able to create good miters with a TS. It would take a good miter gauge with “stops” so you can cut accurate lengths, and of course it will require the miter slot to blade adjustments to be correct.
If you can give us more info we’ll be better able to help.
