This is phase 2B
In my previous post, I found that the frame and the table were not square and therefore the table would hit the frame when flipping. I tried to simply push the frame open a little, but the issue was too severe. Back to square one.
To square the frame to the table I used clamps and washers.
I’m sure there’s a better way to determine the correct angles but since I do not know how, I simply did the WAG…. Wild Ass Guess! This is what I did, I simply put the wood in the position (I hoped was right) and drew a line.
QUESTION: So my dear LJ’s friends… how would I have determined the cut using a speed square??
The angle I guessed was greater than I could cut on my table or miter saw, I my wife comes out and tells me see’s off to work to which I reply, “honey can you hold this for me while I make this cut?”
The back supports now in place. On to the front.
Since Pam wasn’t here to help with the next big angled cut, I have to improvise. I raised the blade over the piece and moved the wood into position. I then clamped and cut.
Now the table flips in both directions without hitting the frame and the unit seems to be very sturdy.
Ready for phase 3 – enclosing the bottom and adding wheels for mobility.
