|I simply leave the
blade at 90° and tilt the workpiece instead. The trick is holding the workpiece
at the same angle that it will be in when it's assembled.
To do this, I use a handy sled made out of plywood and hardboard, as you can see
in the drawing at right. The sled attaches to my miter gauge. A tall fence on
the back and a lip on the front of the sled helps hold the workpiece in the proper
position as you make the cuts (detail a).
Have a nice weekend,
