Cutting shallow angles can be tricky. Normally miter saws and tablesaw miter gauges aren’t capable of making these cuts. On a recent project, I needed to make 30-degree angled cuts on the ends of my boards for some triangular boxes. This required a saw table setting of 60 degrees, which my saw doesn’t have. I solved the problem by clamping my workpiece to a 12-in. by 12-in. support block made from two layers of 3/4-in. plywood. Then I set my saw at 30 degrees and cut the angle, as shown here.
