Topic tags/keywords: learning tower wobble legs question

This is my first post on Lumberjocks.

I am building this learning tower from Ana White ( http://www.ana-white.com/2010/12/helping-tower.html ) and for some reason the tower is not square. It also wobbles.

I have been troubleshooting the wobble problem and have not come to a solution.

If anyone can help, that would be great.

Thank You

If it’s not square chances are good that it’s also racked and that’s why it wobbles. If you are using a framing square of some kind I’d suggest you try another one on the joints you made – I would wager that they are off. Telling us what kind of joints you used would help. If you are doing mortise and tenon and things aren’t tight it will move when you clamp it up.

How did you build it?
Its the saw cuts or the assembly process (or both) in which case errors multiply with each step.

Check your saw for square and square parts up before fastening.

And check everything with a square that is square!!

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!

Have your say...
