based on what you've presented, i've no idea what you are attempting to do. perhaps if your idea were fleshed out a bit more, assistance might be possible.

This is a diagram of a project I am working on, but there cuts as shown is showing me a angle cut with a 2x6 laying flat??? The only way to make a cut like this is too stand the piece up on the 2" side which might be dangerous...

looks like a simple bevel to me

I'm not sure what angle .... maybe about 30 degrees? Don't forget when mitering, on a miter saw you subtract the needed angle from 90 degrees to set your saw angle. When beveling, tilt the blade over to 30 degrees on the bevel scale, usually on the rear of the saw.

If you are using a sliding compound miter saw it can be set up with just setting the saw to a bevel, and then you can crosscut it laying down flat. If you are using a compound miter saw (chop saw), you may not have enough height between the table and the blade to stand the piece up.

You could cut the angle flat using a handheld circular saw with the bevel set, and a crosscut guide. You may want to clamp the piece down.

Cabinet man thanks, I guess the only way to do this is with a circular saw, which is okay, but just wanted to see if there was something out there that would do what I want it to do like a chop saw...

I read all the posts...

.... including my own and post no. 11. It was a simple bevel cut on a 2" x 6". "Problem solved."


Did you read post #7? A miter saw that's not a sliding miter saw may not have the length of cut with just a down stroke, or enough height under the blade to stand the piece up.
