Adjustable Pull Saw Miter Box
Cut small pieces accurately and safely with a pull saw using this shop-made miter box.
This Pull Saw Miter Box makes accurate cuts with a narrow kerf and little or no tearout. To start with, guides attached to the top of the miter box are adjustable, so you can fit it to your saw. And they provide support for the three most common angles — 45° left, 45° right, and 90°. To do this, the guides are held in place with large washers and screws that pass through oversized holes. This way, you can “squeeze” the guides against the blade of the pull saw for a snug fit. “Portholes” on the top of the miter box provide a convenient way to look through the top of the miter box and see the layout line.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
