Now, that is COOL! So many tricks of the trade we'll never learn them all.

I wish I had seen this sooner. I just did some baseboards and of course the outside angles weren't 90 degrees. I didn't have a gauge so a lot was trial and error. This trick would have saved a lot of time.

This show airs every Saturday afternoon on the Vermont PBS station and I record it every time and watch later, I have learned so much from them. I also tape This Old House and the Woodright's Shop. I really miss the New Yankee Workshop so I sometimes view it on the Internet. Norm Abrahm is the main inspiration for me starting in woodworking more than 30 years ago.

That is a great technique. Only downside is you can't rationalize a new tool.
