cutting quarter round molding

I am installing 3/4" oak quarter round molding. The question I have is I have come to an area where I need to cut a miter that is 110 degree mitre. How can I cut this using a mitre saw I am assuming that if a 90 degree is needed you cut a 45 however if 110 degrees is needed you cut a 65 degree but how do you do this when the saw only allows up to a 45 degree cut.

thanks dan

A traditional miter box won't do it of course, most will only cut a 45 degree angle. I'm not positive but there might be more expensive boxes that cut at various angles, you'll have to check into it. Otherwise, a chop-saw is what you need.... then again I'm not sure if the go up to 65 degrees. I have one but I'm not sure if it goes up that high, again you'll have to check.

I have done these type of angles by putting something between the piece and the fence to increase the angle. Will probably take some trial and error but it's doable.

Make a plywood angle at 45 degrees and use it to rotate the quarter round. then set the saw for the additional 20 degrees.

I have a Delta compound miter saw. It will go past the 45 setting.

Colored wood filler works great for any small gaps.
