Default Cutting 45

When cuttng a 45 degree cut on a table saw in order to make a box how do I stop the blade from pulling the board and thereby making the adjorned corners not fit?

Not sure if I understand your problem. Is your material lifting after the cut? If so use a push block that catches the edge as well as extends over the top kind of like a shoe with a heal. You can also add a feather board on the fence to keep material flat on the table. Adding one just before the blade would help too. Helps keep your material straight against then fence as it's being cut.

Have a nice & safe day!
