  • 70 degree miter cut

    I am putting shadow box molding on my stairway and need to make a 70 degree miter cut and my miter goes up to 58 degrees. What do I do?

    Either build a sled to cut the angle or build a triangle shaped jig that attaches to the miter gauge to make up the difference.

      Do you have a table saw? I think a taper jig at 20 degrees should do it.

        I see taper jigs at Sears for about $20 bucks would that do it?

          One way is the taper jig, set at 20-degrees. But you need your workpiece's length to be parallel to the fence on the. Depending on length that might be possibel / practical.

          The alternative is using a pre-made triangle, or a shop made 45-degree jig, attached to your miter gauge. Set the miter gauge to 25-degree. The 25+45 degrees will give you a 70-degree cut.

          Just be sure the jig is secured and your workpieces is secured to the jig somewow. It'll want to slip and move at that extreme angle.
