I’m working on picture frames so I’m only talking about small stock (no bigger than 1×3s) and 45s.
I have a hand-me-down Makita miter saw with a new blade in it. I can set it to a 45 with a good square and get pretty good results- but I’m looking to make easy, repeatable 45s.
I have a router table which I’ve been learning (it’s only a month old). My thought is this, since I don’t have a table saw:
Could I build a miter sled and slide it down the miter groove(like you would on a table saw) using a straight router bit to cut?
I’m thinking tat if I put the effort into making the sled properly I should be able to get repeatable results.
My other option is to buy a junky table saw for this purpose. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
