Tip

Most saws include a miter fence to cut tiles and accent pieces at a 45-degree angle. But some trim pieces, such as listellos, require a taller fence to prevent tilting of the piece as it goes through the blade. Use a scrap piece of 2x lumber cut at 45 degrees as a miter fence. The -inch height should provide plenty of stability.
