Does anybody use a shooting board for this operation? I find a shooting board invaluable for sneaking up on a perfect fit for 45 degree miters. If the angle is off a smidge, I can shim the stock for a perfect fit. That, however is seldom necessary. My miter plane removes stock in .001" increments - hard to do with a saw - so sneaking up on the perfect fit is less risky with a shooting board than with a saw.
