Thank you, that is helpful info. I m looking into those miter trimmers now, it seems my first impression might’ve been a bit off. That might be the way to go.

I appreciate the info from all.

Actually I just realized I lied…sorry about that…I didn’t get my miter trimmer from Rockler, I got mine from Highland Woodworking. I did not opt for the “top trim attachment” or the “measuring attachment”. The manual miter box saw might not be a bad idea either, I don’t use one, but I can see how it might be an advantage especially with certain wood types. With the miter trimmer you don’t have to be real close in your initial cut, it just has to be ballpark at best. the hand saw just might help to prevent splitting or a power saw gunching up the wood right where you are trying to get a perfect miter. Here are a few photos of some bald cypress frames done with the trimmer:
