Hmmm. Am I thinking wrong, the inside angle is 90°+ 45° = 135°. the bisected angle would be 65.5°.Maybe this will help.
When you make a normal 90-degree miter, you cut the pieces at 45 degrees (half of 90).
For this application, you are making angles of 45 degrees, so the cuts would be 22.5 degrees (half of 45).
That will make the mating pieces the same thickness.
Yes, it was a good learning experience and I can't ask anything for what is essentially a prototype for gaining skills. I really prefer to gift what I make as most of my friends are looking for or likely to spend what these things are worth. Cuts out a lot of expectations and complication in doing this well.Brian,
We all tend to be critical of our projects, but lets face it, it is very nice and practical and a gift. It sure beats my table piece that only holds napkins and the S&P shakers !
I do like that mine has a handle, did you consider that as a feature ?
