        The angle is 9.46 degrees. But that's hard to mark. Instead, I just put in the measurements for the front and back of the legs and body. In both cases the front is just 1/8" shorter than the back. For the legs the back is 2 1/2" and the front is 2 3/8" (measured up from the feet). For the body the back is 2 1/8" and the front is 2" (measured down from the shoulders). The hinge goes on the front on the short sides of the legs and body. Hope this helps and have fun flipping!!!

              Just a guess but Fox Chapel sells two books from Bob Gilsdorf.

                  Reply to wipe on poly and tack cloth
                  by Don in Brooklin On
                  I use wipe on poly quite often and I apply 2 thin coats before sanding with 220 or 320. I wipe with a lint free. Someone told me not to use tack cloth as you can leave behind a wee bit of beeswax witch could cause issues later on.

                  I make sure that the surface is dry and not tacky before...

                  wipe on poly and tack cloth
                  by dwssr2
                  Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
                  How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

                  Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way.
