Nice compound mitre joints,

Are these simple butt joints or is there some reinforced joint?

Thanks for posting.

parkerdude—just a glued miter joint with the aid of a little CA glue—I need to work on a jig for doing splines

Nice job using up the scraps. It is never scrap as long as it can be used for something.

Nice.
You did a really good job on all the double angles. That can get confusing.

Are the bottoms rabbeted in, or did you bevel them too? (Hmmm, I guess you could have done both.)

The CA glue is a nice tip.

Steve

there is a bit of all the the bunch
the first one i built was the large serving tray in the back and i beveled the bottom and set it in—didn’t like the look so i set out to build a jig to use on the router table to dado the bottom in so it was trapped—the jig didn’t work so good (back to the drawing board on that one) that was done fo the octogon bowl
the last two were bevel cut and set in but i didn’t bevel cut the tops and bottoms so the bottom is in a bit of a recess
all in all i’m happy with them although they are by no means perfect—i need to learn how to not rush things LOL

Jeff,

Those compound angles look pretty complicated, especially the octagon. And what a great use of scraps! Thanks for sharing.

thank you L/W—the compound mitres were something that were something that i really didn’t have a clue about until i found this little program that gives the angles needed to set up the mitre guage and blade tilt and would recommend it to anyone—the only thing i found is that i had to figure was blade tilt by subtracting from 90 degrees to use my Wixey tilt box and mitre guage setting was pretty easy with my Incra Miter 1000SE

Thank you Martyn but I can tell you now they come no where close to the things you do and a comment coming from the master is quite nice
