I have a small table saw and am trying to bevel lengths of 1x material such that the widths of the two resulting pieces after having been ripped is equal. The angular measure of the bevel is largely inconsequential, so long as it is equal on both pieces (which it should be regardless I would assume) Is there a formula or rule for how the bevel affects an attempt to split the wood evenly. (I.e) if I have a board that measure 3” wide and I want to rip it into two pieces each 1.5” wide at widest and both beveled 15 degrees how do I figure out, at what measurement to set the rip fence? Is there an applicable formula useful for other board dimensions and/or angles? Thank you.. (I am building stretcher bars for oversized painting canvases)
