building a small box (9×6x5) . what would be the best cutting sequence on a RIGHT tilt table saw to get a continuous grain look for the box? I’ve looked at the video on youtube with the sliding miter saw but just can’t seem to wrap my head aroung how to do that on the right tilt table saw.

I am not sure about the question you are asking. If you are building a closed box and want to saw it open on a table saw the only thing to remember is to keept the same side agains the fence on every cut. Remember to check everything and make sure the blade is exactly 90 deg etc.

You can and should use stop blocks on your miter gauge fence extension. Cut miters on both ends of your first piece, Then cut the miters on subsequent pieces keeping the same side face up for every cut. Flat cut all 4 sides about 1 1/2 ” longer than the final sides and number them sequentially before you cut any miters. Hope this didn’t confuse you more. It’s easier to do than to describe! You will wind up with the grain wrapped around 3 sides. Haven’t found a way to get it wrapped around that fourth corner (put in on the back).

Gfadvm I think that helps. I was trying to figure out how to do it cutting the miters as i go, but doing it your waay by cutting all pieces square first i think will make it easier. Ya, i realize the wrap is only 3 cornered.

thanx

If your not going to have a rabbit on the top then round over before you miter .
