After reading indplswoodworking’s post on the simple mitre Box produced as a result of calibrating their saw, this prompted me to post this “Test Cube”.
How it came about was a result of seeing a box LLWW had produced with a mitered base.
I wanted to see if I could reproduce something as precise as Larry’s on my compound miter saw.
As it was purely another one of my ‘experiments” I only used some MDF I had lying around.
I set up the saw to cut precisly the width of the material into 45 Deg angled squares.
Cut six squares out.
Glued them together as pairs.
Assembled them into a cube.
Checked the results and lo and behold they were very accurate.
So I set to and made a second one just to make sure I didn’t “fluke it”
Sure enough I obtained the exactly the same results.
So I set them on the bench and took the accompaning photos to share.
Yes you can get the accuracy and repeatability with precise set up and skillfull cutting using a miter saw.
So what am I going to do with them? Who knows, possibly glue them together and veneer the outsides.
