Are you sure?
I was taught to bevel is a verb and to make a miter is a noun
I can bevel the hell out of anything, I just cant make it fit together properly to make a miter.
The discussion rises again.
You bevel the long edge
of a board or other material by setting the blade over at an angle:
The edge of a plane blade or chisel is referred to as the bevel.
You miter the face
of a board using a miter saw or miter gauge:
A power miter saw, also known as a chop saw
or drop saw
, is a power tool used to make a quick, accurate crosscut
in a workpiece, at 45 degrees precisely is mostly used for softwoods. Common uses include framing
operations and the cutting of molding
. Most miter saws are relatively small and portable, with common blade sizes ranging from eight to twelve inches.
A primary distinguishing feature of the miter saw is the miter index that allows the angle of the blade to be changed relative to the fence
. While most miter saws enable precise one-degree incremental changes to the miter index, many also provide "stops" that allow the miter index to be quickly set to common angles (such as 15°, 22.5°, 30°, and 45°).
Boards that are narrow in width can be beveled or mitered within the capacity of the saw. A table saw can bevel an edge of greater length because you can use the fence and run it parallel to it. A miter saw can bevel the edge of a board by holding it vertically against the fence rather than laying it face down, which would be a miter.....
It only matters what you call it when asking a question here, because the answer may depend which process and machine
