Enter the number of sides of an object into the calculator to determine the correct wood angle cut.

## Angle Cut Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a miter angle cut.

A = 360 / S / 2

- Where A is the angle cut in degrees
- S is the number of sides of the object or corner

## Angle Cut Definition

**What is an angle cut? **An angle cut is a measure of the angle required to set a miter at for cutting wood into a desired number of sides.

## Example

How to calculate an angle cut?

**First determine the number of sides.**For this example, we are attempting to cut a piece of lumber into a 4 sided object.

**Next, calculate the miter angle.**Using the formula above, calculate the angle cut. 360/4/2 = 45 deg miter angle cut.
