Jay is right on about acquiring a good table saw. After that, build a table saw sled, to help you make very accurate and repeatable miter cuts.

FWIW, I have a 12in Ridgid miter saw. I quit using it for miter cuts because I could not make repeatable cuts with enough accuracy for furniture. Sure, good enough for framing, just not fine WW-ing. The only thing I now use the miter saw is for making rough cuts of 8/4 and 12/4 lumber.

A good table saw with a sled is a killer combination. Welcome to LJs 8-)
