this is a 2×4x8’ ripped at 30 deg. to make 3 rails
for holding work to be finished (spray or brush)
off of the underlying surface
being either saw horses or work table
and extend the work area
they don’t roll around

the advantage is these triangle sticks
have crisp clean corners
so little to touch the drying surface
and leave marks or imprints

as they warp and twist
they can be rotated till a ‘straight’ edge is found

and many cab doors or parts can be done at once

i got 3 out of a 2×4
and cut one to 4’ for smaller work
tape can be put on the corners if desired
to keep them from sticking to the work
and changed as needed”

all together this took less time than loading one picture here

Hi Patron-
You ripped the whole length of 8’ instead of cross cutting it first? Isn’t it kind of hard to steady it and walk it through? I realize you have sufficient outfeed, but, but, but…. !

hi larry
.
and barb
i could have ripped to 12’
always have the table saw
in the middle of any given space
same length both ends
a bunch of 4’ rails are harder to use
(2 of these are 8’ and 2 of them 4’)

Nice little paint triangles. Less expensive than the ones at Rocklers.

A good idea David, I think you might have a winner. Glad to see that you haven’t froze to death out there. I’ve been watching the weather around Santa Fe and it’s too cold there for me. I was hoping to take my kid sking at Toas but it doesn’t look like that’s gonna happen this year. Hope you get to feeling better.
