I have finally put up the swing bar on the boys’ playground in the back yard, and I want to put in a couple of braces between the 4×6 beam and the 4×4 supports. I plan on laying the support board flat on the 4×4 support and running it at an angle up to the 4×6 beam. This, of course, will result in a compound angle at the beam. Since I am not sure of the angles the supports make with the beam or the angle at which I will be sloping the support up to the beam, I cannot mathematically figure out the compound angle. Does anyone know how to mark out the compound miter one the swing set? If I can figure this out I will mark it out and then cut to the layout lines.
Thanks again for the help,
