A little Cut and Paste

Here is a small improvement on yesterdays post about using an angle based straight scale to draw sightlines. I fooled around with it a bit and created this scale.

Hopefully you will be able to print it out and use some spray adhesive to glue it to a piece of posterboard. (to print it try saving the image to your desktop first!)
The nice thing about this scale is that it eliminates the step of having to draw a second line square to the base line. Simply put one side of the scale on the baseline so that the drilling location corresponds to the splay that you want and then make a mark up on the perpendicular scale next to the rake that you want and then connect the two marks. If need be, I can make another video.

You go way above and beyond to help the rest of us out and it's so appreciated. Taking the time to draw this out just for others, makes you a true craftsman dedicated to the art and knowledge of chairmaking. I hold you in such high praise simply because you are genuinue. THANK YOU

Thanks guys, honestly, I'm just horsing around in the shop! I'm just glad to know that there are "others" out there, it makes me feel more normal at cocktail parties.
