Pull Saw Miter Box
Short molding lengths it can be inconvenient and sometimes dangerous to cut with power tools. I prefer to cut them by hand, using a Japanese saw and a shop-made miter box.
Create the two guiding blocks for the corner box from 1-1 / 2 ″ x 4 ″ x 12 ″ blank space. (I glued two 3/4 “pieces of plywood together.) Cut the blank in half on your table saw or miter saw. Then, using paper or playing cards, make two spacers exactly equal to the thickness of your blade. saw. (My saw blade is the same thickness as a playing card.)
To glue the blocks to a base, place the spacers between the blocks and lock the blocks from one end to the other. Then, pin a straight, sturdy piece of wood onto the front of the blocks to pull them into alignment. Finally, glue this assembly to the base. Do not remove the spacers until the glue is dry. –Tom Caspar
