Back Bevel

Whether you're making miters or straight cuts, beveling the cut slightly toward the back side of a piece of trim—a trick known as back beveling—helps ensure tight butt joints. You can tilt the blade, of course, but it's quicker and easier to shim up the stock by slipping a pencil underneath it, close to where the cut will be made.
