I finally had a day off, so I chopped up the messed up lock-mitered legs by setting the blade right up against the fence at a 45 degree angle. I was able to push the legs through with the help of a featherboard to be as safe as possible. I chopped a bit off each side, but I think the next version will be much better, even if they’re up to 1/2” smaller on each face. I started to run the freshly liberated faces through the table saw to reestablish fresh mitered edges to prepare for a spline or a lock miter, but chickened out and worked on another project.
After I got to a stopping point on the other project, I thought I’d give my new BeadLock Pro 1/2” kit a try in preparation for the chairs. It was relatively straightforward, but the test pieces were a strong 32nd off. That may be good enough for a table, but if I’m going to use this for my Rodel chairs, I want a bit more accuracy. I’ll give it a couple more tries to see if it was me. Once I figure it out, I’ll post a Review.
Sorry, no pics this time. I’ll post some pics when I figure out what the heck to do with the legs.
