Having a lot of trouble making a miter saw table. Trying to get the wood perfectly level with the miter saw and I can never get straight cuts with ripping on table saw or circular saw it’s straight but will vary 1/16 of inch every so often on my line. How do I make something perfect see all these guys on youtube ripping them right out.

when ripping lumber on a tablesaw, the edge of the wood riding along the fence has to be perfectly straight.
rip fence has to be in alignment with the blade.
feather boards may help. also supporting work on the outfeed side.

but as bill mentioned, more info would help. more info on your technique would help us help you,too.

Agreed, other thought is build the table & wings near spec & then shim the tool to flush the mitre bed to the wings

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it

” Having a lot of trouble making a miter saw table. ”
are you trying to build your own miter saw?
You need to provide more and better information/explanation for us to be able to help you.
