miter cut for unsquare corner

I'm feeling a little challenged installing some base molding on an out-of-square outside
corner. The corner is more like 92 or 93 deg. so my understanding is that would require a
bevel setting that goes beyond the 45 deg. limit of my miter saw. Any suggestions would be greatly

If you put the molding in your miter box upside down and backwards the 45 limit will serve as a starting point for angles over 90 degrees. As you bring the blade to what would normally be considered 'less' than 45, you're actually cutting greater than 45.

A T-bevel (from a good hardware store) will allow you to measure the exact angle of your cut...
