In the last blog, I completed the tails for the project (after a few mistakes). The next steps are a lot faster and less error prone.
Line up to the A cuts and then first step in cutting the tails is to set the stop block so it just barely misses the bit.
Making sure to keep you fence mark side aligned against fence (easy to forget for this step), cut one full set of pins, advancing to each A cut.
Then check the fit. As you can see, I am shallow by 1/16”. So I need to push the stop block back by 1/16”.
I then recut the pins, check the fit and then cut all four sides.
And then we are done … quick, easy and no mistakes.
Given that I have done all the cool stuff, not sure how many people will read the rest of this blog but I will finalize the project by completing base, cutting hand holds and finishing it up.
Thanks for reading.
