Handsaw Miter Box

This handy jig makes it easy to make cuts in small pieces safely and accurately every time with your handsaw.

Cutting small pieces like delicate molding or thin glass stop poses some unique challenges. Since the pieces are often very small, they can be hard to hold down and cut safely at the table saw or power miter saw. But it’s important that each piece is cut accurately for a tight fit. For this reason, we usually rely on a handsaw and a miter box. Now, this the cheap, plastic miter boxes you find at hardware stores. The wide slots in these miter boxes don’t do a good job of guiding the saw. Instead, in the miter box you see here a set of low-friction guides press against the body of the saw plate without binding. The results are safe, accurate cuts.
