« Part 20: Re-routed and sanded the raised panels Part 21 of Hope Chest for Daughter #2 series Part 22: Corners glued up and first frame glued up. »

I banged out a quick cross cut sled as my sliding miter is a little fickle maintaining a square cur…

Then I cut all of the rails and styles to their final length

I had to sneak in a side project to make a coping sled (see my latest project post)...

So I was then able to make all of my cope cut on the rail ends…

I’m going to use 45 deg. bevel rip cuts on the to join the outer styles in each corner. This is only the second time I’ve ever tilted the blade on the TS and I had to make a new ZCI for the TS so I could do 45 deg bevel rip cuts…

This was my set up with the fence moved to the right of the blade. The Gripper made this very stable and safe…

I thought about picking up a Wixley digital angle readout, but decided to borrow the digital angle readout we use at work….

Here you can see. Test fit…

Getting ready to assemble the panel frames….

Thanks for looking in.

Nice work, Matt! Hubby got me one of those digital bevel gauges for Christmas. Haven’t had a chance to use it yet. You are gonna get this thing built!

Very well done Matt. X-cut sleds really are a gr8 addition to any tablesaw
