Looking for tips on building kickers or ledges for use on a fun box. I find it tricky to cut angles on my table saw. Wondering how everyone else does it?

yeah, it is... i made a funbox with a table saw, it worked, but it was pretty sketchy.
a backsaw works very well, but of course it's a lot more effort.

Did you just belt sand it after? I feel like it's tricky to get the lip to be so thin that the board can roll up with ease

If you have a belt sander, you can kinda cheat by using a block of wood and sanding it to the shape you want wink

Are you saying just sand it down versus cutting it? I do have a belt sander but it's not the widest strip. I will try thank you

Make the actual riding surface longer and file it smooth. Worked for me.

As long as it is not to steep it should be fine.
