Maybe you've done this, maybe not. It's a simple jig for cutting stuff on a 45 degree angle. 


I already made the dado's in the legs for the project, and I wanted to add another crossmember to support the deck.

The upper and lower crossmembers across the front of the piece were an afterthought. 


Grabbed a piece of small 1/4 plywood, and some 45 degree blocks that I had cut from part of the project.


drilled and countersunk some screws, squared it all up, worked like a charm.


it allowed me to position the 4x4 on edge and safely and accurately plow a dado on the 45 I needed.
