Angle Cut Calculator

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.


How to calculate an angle cut?

  1. First determine the number of sides.

    For this example, we are attempting to cut a piece of lumber into a 4 sided object.

  2. Next, calculate the miter angle.

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