It may sound simple, but I’m pretty sure there’s more to it than it looks like.
I am making a open-top box, bin, basket, what-have-you to toss throw pillows in at the foot of the bed. The four sides will be slightly angled or flared-out instead of straight up and down.
If you cut each side as a trapezoid, the miters are not still 45 deg. are they? Isn’t there some calculation to figure out the angle?
I have always wondered this. Thanks!
