adding kitchen cabinet island trim

I am adding four pieces of trim in a rectangular trim pattern on to a kitchen cabinet island on the side of the cabinet that is just a flat surface wood. I cut the pieces at a 45 degree angle but when I put them on the cabinet face the cut surfaces don't lay flat against each other. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

It is possible you have the saw set at a slight bevel, or you are trying to cut the molding upside down, and it is rolling on you. Make sure it is flat on the saw base, and your miter is exactly 45 degrees, or 22.5 degrees in the event of an octagon. Treat the saw base as your wall surface. Make sure, too there isn't a piece of trash between the wood you are cutting and the fence on your saw. It must be clean so you have a clean cut.

works now

Thanks, I was getting a different angle because I was cutting one end on the front side of the trim and cutting the other end on the back side.
