This is my first post and am not even really an apprentice wood worker yet…but I want to be !

I want to cut my own picture frames and mount about 30 pieces in various sized frames (odd sizes) throughout my house.

I have a Dewalt 717 and the Dewalt miter stand with which I cut all the Crown molding etc. in my house. I know the miter saw isn’t the saw of choice for a real framer, but it’s what I have (I also know fitting crown molding and picture frames are not the same!).

I’ve looked online and am very interested in the Kreg Precision Measuring System for cutting the molding the same lengths. I see many examples of permanent and foldable rolling miter stations on this board and they are beautiful. However, I don’t have the ability to make something like that.

I’m wondering if anyone has made a sytem to fit into the track of the existing stand to hold the Kreg measuring system? Would that even be possible? I’d like to be able to move the saw/stand under a tree in the summer time to help keep me cool in this hot texas weather…..

Thanks in advance for your consideration…

I guess after looking at the Kreg manual, I can figure out how to make a table for the saw and a fence to attach the Kreg system to…...doesn’t look too hard and probably a good place to start…..

what we do in the field is clamp a block of wood to the saws fence when making multiple cuts of the same length. If they are longer than the saw we set up saw horses for an auxilery table and nail a 2×4 down. it’s a quick set up and free.

-- measure once, keep cuttin' til it fits
