I made 2 separate jigs for my angle cuts for this project. One is a 30 and the other is a 15. All parts were cut on my table saw sled. I got much better and consistent angles this time. I am looking for a multi jig for cutting my angles if anyone has a link to some good ones plz let me know.

The first one was good. I can see the improvement now that you are really hooked. Nice work.

Nice work. Go to There are two or three different plans on the site for making your own sleds for cutting segments. Click on “tools and jigs” and scroll down. You’ll find them.

Great work and much better glue joints than your first, mostly perfect in fact. I use a sanding jig to perfect my glue joints. Not everyone does that, but then you have to have a good sharp table saw or miter saw blade and perfect settings. Saws tend to get a little dull long before sharpening, so I prefer the sanding jig method.

Very nice! I like the contrasting color.This is the table saw sled that I use. It’s very adjustable and safe. Keep on turning.
