That clamp idea works for glue bottles as well.

When wanting to make a 90 degree cut to a piece of wood, I get a block that has a 90 degree angle and put it against the fence. Then I clamp or grip the piece tightly against the wood block as I run it through the saw blade. I get a perfectly clean cut.

If I need to trim the wood to a specific dimension, I adjust the fence to the approximate spot, then use cardboard shims to trim it successively until it's the correct size.

I like this better than using a miter gauge, since this gets out of whack and also because the piece can slide during its run through the saw. You do have to be careful with your hands using my method.
