        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.

                Quartz you are absolutely right about the need for a good blade and proper tuning of the saw. I thought the price was a lot cheaper than I expected. Only nine ornaments

                Thanks Rolf. Hard to see, but the light wood is curly maple. Beautiful
