Best tip of the issue

Some of my birdhouses have steep roofs which require cutting angles of 60* or more on the tablesaw. Instead of making several fixed-angle jigs, I built this adjustable one from 3/4-in. plywood. Two lid supports allow the jig to adjust to angles from 45* to 90*. Make sure that the back support is high enough so the lid supports clear your fence.
