The first time I got to use a miter saw was a life-altering experience.
After putting the fear of God in me, my dad taught me how to make straight cross cuts.
The ability to crosscut wood was a powerful upgrade to my fort-building skills.
Maybe that is why my miter saw is my favorite. I just used it for the room addition in my garage, and for redoing the trim on a house we just flipped (2020 was an excellent year to exit a house flip.)
Here is a list of my articles related to saws. For now, I am also including chainsaws in this list.
