Half lap advice, please? - 10 replies
The missus has tasked me to design and build a pair of writing desks for our daughters, modeled after one she found online. I plan on using half laps to join the two triangle frames.

Single phase, 115V, 3/4hp shaper. It’s made by Intergram. I believe it’s an Asian copy of a Delta. It’s still crated up in the 2×4’s to make hauling about easier. I think the start capacitor is bad, as it’ll hum when powered up, but won’t spin on its own. If I spin the spindle manually, it’ll pic...
