Compound Angles The Easy Way

I I don’t have a compound miter saw, but I figured out how to cut the necessary compound bevel at the top and bottom of the spread legs. My answer is to use my basic miter saw and a scrap piece.

I imagined the leg being held at an angle while cutting to the required mild, so I dropped the piece onto a V-shaped cradle I made years ago from a 2 × 4 for drilling round butt, especially the dowels.

With my miter saw set to 10º – it works at any angle – I cut the piece while it was resting in the cradle.

Bingo. Great success without a compound miter saw. –Serge Duclos
