I am making quadralinear quartersawn oak legs for a table I’m building. In other words I want all four sides of the leg to show the rays in the oak. I have cut down my stock so that each is .75 thick and shows the rays. The finished size of the legs should be 1.5” x 1.5” so I’ll just need to do what I show in the picture here and cut the two corresponding 45’s into the boards. My table saw will not tilt to 4 due to the incra TS-LS rail being in the way so that’s not an easy fix. I’d have to take the whole rail off. However I have access to another table saw that will cut this so no problem there.
My main reason for putting this on the forums is to see if anyone has a better way to do this or thinks that the table saw just won’t work for these two cuts. I’m not even really sure that this is safe or won’t cause huge problems trying to do this on the table saw.
I thought about the router table but I think I would need an upside down 45 degree bevel bit to do it so that the flat part stays against the table.
Thanks in advance.
