Correct miter orientation

2 posts in this topic

I build a lot of plywood chests with hardwood trim. I miter all of the trim @ 45* at each corner of the box. When I cut miter at the saw, what is the "correct" (safest/most accurate) orientation of the board to the saw? Standing on edge up against the back fence, or laid flat on the table? I assume against the back fence, but I wanted to be sure.

either should be fine as long as both are against the fence and you have enough room to keep your hands safely away from the blade. I would assume it is just personal preference and depending on how wide the boards all because I like to cut wider boards flat and not standing.
