Make a Saddle(4 of 4)

Another way to achieve a greater angle on the saw is to make a saddle for the fence, then attach an extra piece to it so you can support the board during the cut.

Tip: Use an angle finder to make sure you've obtained the proper angle. If not, adjust the angle of the blade until you're getting the angle you need.

Note: Take extra care when making these cuts. The angle of the blade can cause the board to become pinched between the blade and the fence. Also, the scrap piece can kick back.
