Any reason you can’t do a 22-1/2 degree angle on both pieces instead of 45 & 90? BTW, the math comes out to 1.060660171779821 . . . . . . inches.

You can use some kind of a CAD program to draw out the layout and get the angles from that. Each of the two parts will have a different angle because of the different thicknesses. toddbeaulieu842 posts in 3805 days #3 posted 07-25-2016 05:10 PM “Any reason you can’t do a 22-1/2 degree angle on both pieces instead of 45 & 90?” Do you mean other than me being a moron? None that I can think of. Wow, that was embarrassing.

None that I can think of.” This has to be one of the best responses I’ve seen here! It is great to know I am not alone, that has been my realization far too many times when faced with a ‘problem’ in woodworking that is easily resolved by someone that knows what they are doing :-) -- "Checking for square?

After a variable number of attempts I usually get there. This particular situation was especially embarrassing though. ;) Richard1940 posts in 3492 days #7 posted 07-25-2016 08:36 PM Biscuits Richard1940 posts in 3492 days #8 posted 07-25-2016 08:47 PM “Do you mean other than me being a moron?

I do , just ask me and I will tell you so. :) Right and the Moon is made of Cheese too. That is why this site is so great , somebody here has had the same Problem before and is not to Proud to tell you about it and how to Fix it.

This - Mark Wilson -- Last week I finally got my \$*i# together. Unfortunately, it was in my shop, so I will probably never find it again. Mark Wilson2841 posts in 1864 days #12 posted 07-26-2016 09:13 AM An “accidental selfie” never catches one smiling. I saw it. Aside from that, was it helpful? -- Mark toddbeaulieu842 posts in 3805 days #13 posted 07-26-2016 04:34 PM Yes Mark, that is an interesting approach. I ended up doing 22’s. Now I’m trying to figure out how to do the drawer construction, which will have V shaped fronts. This is for a lazy susan. JayT6402 posts in 3012 days #14 posted 07-26-2016 04:51 PM That’s looking good, Todd, interesting take on a lazy susan. Never seen one like it. -- https://www.jtplaneworks.com - In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.

Apparently the V drawer is called a corner dovetail. I need to look into that because I don’t know how to do that.

That’s a good thing. toddbeaulieu842 posts in 3805 days #17 posted 08-19-2016 08:57 PM In case anyone’s interesting I just posted the completed project. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/263218
