When using my miter saw, I’ve found that the easiest way to sneak up on a line is to use a stack of sticky notes.

First, set a stop block to cut your part slightly oversize (1/16″ is plenty). Attach a thin pile of sticky notes to the stop block, make a cut, and then add individual notes until you’re right on the money. They’ll all stay in place for cutting more parts at the same length. Put the sticky notes back on the pad when you’re done. –Brad Holden
