For those with a sliding table saw, there is a "Fritz and Franz" jig shown on UTube for cutting small pieces. I decided to build one. After I was done, I tried cutting a 5/8 inch cube - all 6 sides cut on the table saw... and was surprised how easy it was. So I went on and made a piece 1/16" by 3/8" (with two bevel ends) by 5/8" - all six sides cut on the table saw. And the blade was never close to my fingers.
If you have a slider and want to build the jig, my plans are at www.solowoodworker.com/mm/rip.html
