no previous part Part 1 of State Fair Series series Part 2: From the Jaws of failure »


I was trolling around the site today just looking for inspiration. There is certainly lots to go round on this site.

I landed on one of Klaus’ blogs. .

So I did my usually skim over the important stuff and asked my self “Why’d he do that?”
I got a hunk of pine squared off the edges and got started.

I give myself credit for trying it out first. For a bonus, I’ll cut the board into four pieces and stand table legs on it for finishing.

Some of Klaus’ genius makes more sense. I’m going to copy his indexing jigs and reread some of his tips now that I understand a “FEW” of the things that can go wrong.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Hi Mark
Nice to hear you are working on a pyramid design box and I thought I mention the latest jig I made for cutting the pattern which I think is simpler and more accurate

Here is a video Mark that may be of interest to you and ignore the cutter I had reground it can be done with a acutter tilted to 45 DEG.
Keep us posted as you progress .
