Mr. Smith this is a big help. Thanks for taking the extra time to do this. One more quick question on the sides where you have the screws while drying, what is the angle on the bottom to make it lay flat? Is it also 30?

Yup. Big help indeed!

But I don’t understand why you wouldn’t cut the triangle to size first. It’s it less work doing it this way?

cutting the triangle first will not give you the correct angle to put all the pieces together

Mr. Smith, thanks for posting this. Quick question for you, what is the length and width of the jig you show above with the 35 degree cutout?
