The best way to get a good angled cut with a circular saw is first to make sure its depth is set correctly, its best to use a saw that can be angled to 45/90-degrees. For accurate results use a speed square against the beading and draw with a pencil as a guide for a 45-degree angle.

Are mitered corners stronger?
A miter joint looks great but isn’t the strongest option. A spline that’s only as wide as a saw kerf can keep the miters perfectly aligned during assembly. And it adds both mechanical and gluing strength to the joint. Cutting miters on the workpieces is where you start the job.
Can you use a Kreg Jig on mitered corners?
First, cut your miter joint. Then place your board in your Kreg Jig. Boards like a 1×4 can be placed in the jig and drilled with the “A” and “C” guides. Boards like a 1×3 can be placed in the jig and drilled with the “B” and “C” guides.
Does Kreg jig work on 2×4?
The Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig HD is optimized for working with 2x4s and 1 1/2″ thick and larger stock.
What angle is a pocket hole?
Pocket–hole joinery, or pocket-screw joinery, involves drilling a hole at an angle — usually 15 degrees — into one work piece, and then joining it to a second work piece with a self-tapping screw.

Do you need to pre drill 2×4?
It’s not absolutely necessary, but to get a good square (as in perpendicular to the drill surface) hole, fit and proper tightness, it’s advisable to pre–drill. Use a smaller drill than the minor diameter of the screw.
Can you screw into side of 2×4?
Two-by-fours are 1 1/2 inches thick. Two of them placed together flat equal 3 inches. It might seem appropriate to use 3-inch screws, but modern drill/drivers and impact drivers bury the head of the screw up to 1/2 inch, and the tip of a 3-inch screw can penetrate out the other side.
Do you need to pre-drill for lag bolts?
Normal wood screws thread as they enter the wood, where lag screws require a hole to be drilled first. Lag screws also use a nut to add extra strength and security to help hold things together.
Do I need to drill a pilot hole?
When you drive screws into wood without drilling pilot holes, you’re essentially pushing wood out of the way to make room for the screw. First off, drilling a pilot hole not only guides the screw into the hole with ease, but it’s a lot easier to drive in a screw, whether you’re using a power drill or a screwdriver.
