Topic tags/keywords: picture frame jig miter 45 joining

Hello
Does anyone have good plans for cutting angles for picture frames or boxes?

The jig I had from wood haven is not cutting accurately anymore and they don’t sell it anymore
Tks

I bought the incra miter gauge and out of the box it cuts perfect miter for picture frames. I made a miter sled from an older issue of shop notes magazine issue 85. I didn’t like it as much as the incra miter gauge . I’ve made a bunch of picture frames lately and the joints are perfect.

And for boxes I made a jig that holds the box side at 45° to the blade. Then I adjust the blade to make a perfect 45 corner.

Have your say...
