Miter Box

Martha Stewart Living Television

A miter box acts as a guide when cutting boards and moldings to a specific angle with a hand saw. Sometimes a saw will stick or bind in a miter box. This can be remedied by rubbing the sides of the saw blade with a candle. The wax allows the saw blade to move smoothly through the grooves of the miter box.
