Miter cuts and gluing
I am making miter boxes out of 3/8 x 6 pine wood and having some trouble. Finished box is 9 1/2 by 2 1/4. I am cutting the miters along the 6" side on a table saw, utilizing the fence to guide the cut. Is this the best way ro should I be doing something different?
I am using the masking tape meathod to glue together. I made a little jig to line up the edges before taping. I find when I lay them all face down, the edges are not perfectly lined up. I,nonetheless, keep the edges against my jig regardless of gaps in the seems. I am doing this so that when I fold the box together the front lines up. Is this the best method?
Also, how much glue is necessary? I am making a bit of a mess, but am afraid to use too little.
I am doing this repeatedly, so I need a good method for cutting and gluing. Help please.
