Hi. I would like to make an angled tray similar to the one they made on the Router Workshop with the heart cutout handles. However, I have sat here and scratched my head for about two hours now and I'm having a brain cramp. I just can't seem to figure out how to set this up. Can anyone help me through the set-up process on a project like this? Thanks.

This happens to be episode 1213 called the angle tray right?

If so I have it on tape and could watch it if I knew a bit more about what you needed to know...... If I recall this is the one that has box joints on the corners and the cutout hearts you mentioned.

They use their slick box joint jig and an angled push block for the joints and a heart shaped jig which I think they also sell at oak-park. I would guess keeping tack of the angles would be the hardest part......

that's the part i'm having trouble with--trying to figure out the angles and making everything come out right? I have the box joint jig, but how does the angled push block come into play?
Hi,

Haven't watched the video yet but as you know the angle is no longer 90 deg. so the push block was cut with a slight angle thus tipping the workpiece as it passed the bit. If you are in a hurry you can start with making some samples and start with like 89 deg and then 88 and so on but it will be within a few deg. of 90 ie no more then 5 off that (if you are using the same angles as they did). What Bob did was make one block and had one side with a back tip and the other with a forward tip as I recall... a parallelagram or how ever that is spelled.

Can't promice to watch it tonight but if you need more information I will try to get to it in a day or two.

The beveled bottom is glued and wedge-fit inside the tray. The top edge of the tray is also beveled.
For tips on compound angles, box joints, heart patterns and beveled sides watch Bob and Rick in episode #1213 of the Router Workshop TV program.
