You might want to try something like this:

I initially considered using the miter saw for precision cross-cuts, as I believe you are proposing. I found that I got much better results using a precision miter gauge with an extension fence an flip stop. It allows repeatable results, i.e., you can cut identical rails/stiles all day long, with absolutely square clean cross-cuts. I use my miter saw these days mostly for cutting parts to rough size.
