Stability and accuracy are the main points.
I learnt to do them by hand which improves hand held saw skills.
You saw each cut vertically from each side but only part way on the opposite side IE at a sloping angle, so following the easily seen marked cut lines, top and facing side.
Turn round and repeat then cut down to the shoulder once both sides have been cut to full length.
Cut off shoulders square or chisel out depending on the piece.
Much easier to do than trying to instruct in words.
Nowadays I use a bandsaw which is much easier to control as you have better support for the timber.
