I think a table saw sled or a miter gauge (a good one) will be more accurate than a miter saw.

I’m considering making a jig like the one in this video.

Not only is it important that you can dial-in repeatable accurate angles, but you must also have accurate length parts. The sides have to be exactly the same length. I think a shooting board would definitely help when you need to remove a sliver of wood to get a tight fit. I wonder though how a small change in the length affects the fit when you have multiple parts.
