Hey everybody, newbie woodworker here. Today I was building a bench and I came across a problem that I couldn’t figure out. For the back rest, I had to miter some 2x4s so that their edge would be flush to the top of the backrest and their other edge would be screwed into the frame. I tried to figure out the angle that was needed and how far from the edge to start mitering. I tried to figure it out by holding one one 2×4 against the top of the back rest and used my speed square to measure the angle from the intersection, it didn’t work. I need help.
