What do you call it?
I was working on a small project for my BIL – a display for one of his recent product developments.
One of the steps required edge banding to cover the plywood edge. Since all my regular stuff is in storage (read inaccessible), I made edge banding on the table saw – approx 1/16” thick, so I needed to make a form to clamp the edge banding until it cured.
During the cutting of the form I had to cut a right angle into the form to hold the part. (See the photos)
I placed the part on the tablesaw on my new crosscut sled, aligning the marks with the kerf in the sled and performed the cut. I used my judgment to stop the cut before it went past the intersection of the lines.
As you can see (I hope) one cut was exactly on and the other only went past by 1/16” or so.
What would you call it? I choose to call it skill (with a little bit of luck)!
Now you may disagree and that’s OK.
My wife says I have a fat head, but she says that about me far to often for it to be just luck!
The last picture is what the finished display will look like. (Minus the edge banding and a clear finish.)
