Trial and error isn’t always the best choice for making cuts on your miter saw because it’s not precise and you could waste valuable wood. So George Vondriska gives you a simple tip that will avoid trial and error and help you be super precise. He recommends using a sacrificial fence to make your cuts beforehand, allowing you to check them on a piece of scrap before making the real cut.
