    Cutting angles on my truck style box...

    I started to make my box for my truck. I am making the front part of it angled, I was was curious on how i should cut the angles where the edges come together. I want it to be as good as possible so i can get a good seal, any suggestions on cutting the angles on the edges?

    Your sides should be cut at angles too. All you have to do is unplug the saw, turn it upside down, put your angle cut side next to the saw blade, angle the blade to match the angled slope of the cut side and BAM! You have your angle.

    Yes, they are very common. Just about any table saw you will buy now days will have it. Even my buddies dads old *** craftsman did angles. Just have to look and see.

    hell, if you have nothing to cut angles, cut it normally (a 90 degree angle), glue the piece on, let it set, then sand away :-) you could even use a little bondo for a nice sharp edge to it
