cutting bevels left and right


I just bought a compound miter saw and I am building a table for it from plans I found on the Internet. The legs call for a 25 degree left miter with a 7 degree left bevel for two legs, the other two need a 25 degree right miter cut plus a 7 degree right bevel cut, the miter I can set the saw for, no problem, but my saw only cuts a bevel to the left, it doesnt move to the right. How do I cut the opposite cuts for the other two legs on this saw? Like I say, I can cut the miter both directions, its the bevel to the right I can't accomplish. Anyone know how to make the cut? Thanks, its got me puzzled.

you need to flip your workpiece upside then turn your angle to the opposite side. Its tricky on a single bevel saw. They have saws that will bevel both ways. Save a lot of agrevation

Thanks, yes thats what it looked like should be done, but as you say, tricky to get done without a wrong cut. Ill stare at it some more in the morning and see if I can figure it out. At least I have two to use as a guide to follow, but still its not something I do every day or even have ever done.
