Topic tags/keywords: jig tip question resource bandsaw tablesaw

Bygrace posted 3 table saw sleds/jigs he recently made and two of them were for mitered cuts. It made me wonder which is better?
I understand the need for the one where he sets the blade to 45 degrees and lays down wider boards. The more I think of this the more I sound stupid in my head!
The jig he has for smaller boards I have seen many times before and I can understand using that for picture frames or standing up boards but couldn’t he use the 45 degree one for the same thing? And if so which would be better??
If I’m not making sense I apologize. I’m currently collecting materials and need to make a collection of jigs for my table saw and band saw. I have limited materials and funds so I’m trying to figure out the best jigs for my needs in box making. Aside from my questions above I would love to hear everyones suggestions!
