    Yes. This should cut a bevel that is wider on the underside than on the top. It might be wise to make a test cut to be sure you’re cutting it correctly. Also, you want to make sure that the instructions are clear as to whether the direction of the cut refers to the way the wood is fed, or the way the blade appears to be moving through the wood. It usually refers to the way the blade appears to be moving through the wood, but it’s possible that the designer wasn’t using standard terminology.

      When doing bevel cut inlays I put a an arrow on the surface so that I know the direction my blade will be going. It is very easy to get your head turned around. Carole is correct on the wording It can be easily misinterpreted.

        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...

        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...
