You can solve this with geometry, but it will take forever and your answer will only be approximate (due partly to the limits of accuracy of the scales on your saw). If you are using a table saw, use scraps of wood and trial and error. It takes a while, but you can get a perfect result. If you are using a miter saw, then support your work from underneath at the angle to match your situation, and simply cut at 45 degrees.

How do I miter with my radial arm saw (RA-2500). I can't tell from the manual.


the slide can be angled by the degree plate where the timber sits
the blade can be angled by the degree plate on the arm that mounts the saw
so you can get a 45 degree to the timber length and a 45 degree angle cut to that angle to give you a corner mitre cut

Making a wooden picture frame with perfect corners


Picture frames are very easy to make, but many people make the same very basic mistake that will ruin your frame. It is very important that you follow the carpenters rule of measure twice and cut once. If you don't cut the sides of the frame to be the same length, and you cut the angles of the corners slightly off then when you put it together the final corner won't line up.

The things that you are going to need is a miter saw, some clamps, a backer board and a drafting squares to make sure you have the right angle.

To set up take your backer board and cut off a piece that's around 4 inches to be used as a sliding marker gauge. After cutting it off attach a small piece of wood to keep the slider from shifting around.

With the saw unplugged and turned off clamp the backer board to the back of the saw. To cut the corners of the a frame you need to set the saw to a 45 degree angle. Make sure to check the angle using a drafting square align one side with the backer board and bring down the saw blade align them to make sure its a 45 degree angle. When you think that its right grab yourself a piece of scrap wood and make an initial cut. After cutting the test measure the angle to make sure that it is the right angle.

When you are ready to cut the frame itself take the four pieces of the frame and make an initial cut. Once all the boards have been cut once take your slider marker to the length that you want the sides of the frame to be and clamp it in. Take the first two sides and one at a time line it up with the backer board with the angle on the outside and the cut point against the slider. Turn on the saw and cut the other end. Repeat these steps to cut the other three sides.

After all the sides have been cut use a 90 degree angle to align the corners of the frame. Lay out all the sides of the frame and line them up as tight as you can. To connect them you can use a staple gun to staple the corners together. If you were aligning it and pushing the sides together when you stapled the corners you should have perfectly aligned corners.

Now all that's left is to sand it down and get the inside ready for a picture and stain it if you want.

How to cut wood trim corner angles ?


It's generally easiest not to figure them at all - prop them in their intended position (although usually upside-down) to make the cut. Doing that eliminates any need for a compound miter saw. That assumes you're talking about crown molding. If you just want the angles for flat moldings, then remember that a square corner equals 90 degrees. Split that corner in half to make a miter joint, and you'll want 45 degrees. If you're making a half-round corner with three pieces, split the 90 degrees by three (the number of pieces) and you get 30 degrees each.

It does get a little more complicated if you're meeting one thickness molding with a completely different thickness molding - then sometimes the easiest thing to do is not miter at all, but make a "coped joint".

What is a compound miter saw?


A compound miter saw has a rotating vertical pivot allowing the cutter head & blade to be tilted (or beveled) sideways in addition to the horizontally rotating table. This allows vertical & horizontal angled cuts as well as cuts angled in both planes.

I bought the 10" compound


I have been in the same situation in the past, with a mastercraft miter saw to a point of using playing cards to get that nice tight miter joint. placing the cards between the fence and the piece i was trying to miter.Rioby makes mastercraft all thought they are a good saw they have their limits to the precisions of their cuts. good for fences,decks, stuctural framing ect, were a degree two is not a big thing,but when making furniture or interior trim work or picture frames or hobby craft you need to buy a good pro saw like a dewalt or bosh sliding compoud miter saw they may cost more **** their worth the money they are very precise and will last a life time if taken care of .It will be worth the money when you get that perfect cut every time you use it,it will put the JOY and fun back in your projects and not to mention qualaty in your master pieces.

I have to install the crown molding around a wall that has an octagonal shape so some of the corner are larger than 90 degrees


Michael, I understand the angles, but you haven't asked a question. But I'll guess and continue... Cutting the angles you need will not be any problem, since they will be about halfway between a 45 degree cut and a straight (that's zero or 90 degrees depending on how you look at it). But the other consideration is that inside corner cuts on trim are done much better if you cope them (this still involves using a miter saw.) Guessing a bit further, you might not know how to do that. Just Google - how to cope trim. There are lots of article and videos on this. Good luck, Al K

How to make a 45 degree angle cut


1. place your moulding inside the box.
2. place the tip of the blade in the first slot and the back end in the third slot. thats a 45 degree angle.
3. to figure which way you need your angle place your moulding at the corner and mark in the corner continuing the line to the outside edge. all you should have to do is cut this mark.
4. if your piece is too difficult to first place in the corner use a measuring tape and be sure that when you are cutting that the piece is facing the correct way so not to cut the wrong angle.

hope this helped dont forget to vote

What do i do to cut inside/outside corners for crown molding


It is very hard to make proper cuts with one of these.

You may want to buy a power miter saw.

You would be better off marking your 45 degree angle and cutting it freehand.

If you angle your saw a little the face will look like it matches up better.

If you need more help post a comment.
