Mitre Boxes and Mitre Saws
Mitre boxes and mitre box saws are tools that work together, helping artists, framers, and woodworkers create accurate angled cuts that will be joined to create a corner. Mitre cuts made at a 45° angle will create a 90° angle when joined. Mitre boxes used by artists and framing professionals to make picture frames will include cutting slots that include 45° and 90°.
Mitre box sets generally include other tools, such as a razor saw to make the cuts. In addition to cutting picture frames, adjustable mitre boxes and mitre box saws can be used for school projects, hobbies, and crafts. Blick also sells coping saws that are used to cut plastic, cardboard, Styrofoam, and metal — and make intricate wood cutouts.
