So I am attempting to make a shoe rack for my closets out of some old aspen I had laying around. I am going to make a finished set out of cedar, but I wanted to try this out from some “scrap” wood (and still have something worth using when I’m done). So I have gotten everything to the point below.
I am kinda stuck now. I could just mark everything and dowel it up and be done with it and have a level show rack, bu shoe racks have a slope to them. I calculated about 5 degrees and roughed it on the table and it seems to fit across the end pieces well. I don’t know how to make a precise jig to hold everything at that angle while I mark, dowel, and glue (AKA I need something very repeatable and stable). I am not confident enough in my skills to just draw, drill, and pray. Any tips on how to get this done?
I tried to rip a long strip at 5 degrees to rest the end piece on and it kept binding and moving my table saw blade. If this was the only solution, then my only solution is to buy a nicer saw.
-- I got something on my mind grapes I need to talk to you about.
