Holder for Mitered Workpieces

Holder for Mitered Workpieces

Here is a convenient and easy way to secure mitered workpieces when you need to cut biscuit slots into their angled ends. Just clamp a long scrap rail across the bench, and clamp a second mitered scrap to it to act as a stop. Align this setup on your bench so you can insert your mitered workpieces into it and access the part end easily with the biscuit joiner.

Clamping workpiece to rail for cutting biscuit slots

I use this method when I need to create a lot of mitered frame parts, because it really speeds up the slot-cutting process.
