  • Angle of cut?

    Is there a "rule-of-thumb" on the angle of cut for different thicknesses of wood? It says in the challange that 2-3 degrees was chosen but, said may differ for different thickness of wood. Should both (or all) peices be smae thickness?

    Thanks,

      To be clear...Only the Top piece of the stack matters. Once you have the angle for that, you can inlay thicker or thinner pieces. And sand the back accordingly....

        I forgot to mention the 5000 watt(?) generator his brother gave him. His brother does house remodeling and lots of times people give him “stuff” just to get rid of it. Bruce had to drain the gas, change the fuel lines and some other minor things for $35 and it starts on the first pull....

        This is his $40 haul. The paint bush was never used. He cleaned up the grinder. He added up all the attachments and brand new everything would be almost $800. This was their yearly tool swap. Every month members bring things they don’t need and swap smaller items. Even scrap wood. Anything 5”x5”...

        Where are you located in England? I was at RAF Lakenheath back in the early 70's and bought my 70 TVR Vixen, which I still have. I absolutely loved my time there.!...
