Noticed that in the Chinese rosewood furniture I inherited - and
there's literally almost a ton of it, that they'd come up with a
more elegant solution to the "challenge" of joining two different
width boards at 90 degrees to each other. Have posted two
pics in a.b.p.w. of an example of one of their solutions.
Feathers hell! I want hair! Though driving The Little White Car
(Miata convertible) is always fun - I'd sure like to add the
feeling of the wind in my hair. On the other hand, I'm more
aero dynamic - which, with current gas prices - $3.399 for
regular unlead out here in the SF Bay Area - has its advantages.
The Chinese Solution #1 is definitely not simpler - since
it involves rounding over the corner AND the top edges of
the horizontal parts. And if you round over the top edges
of the horizontal parts you should round over the bottom
edges as well. That would require rounding over the inside
edges of the "leg" as well.
Them Chinese furniture makers are a crafty (pun intended)
clever lot. (see my subsequent posting
D'ja ever REALLY study a nice piece of furniture?
Fun stuff this woodworking thing.
Board widths are small [s] and large [L]...
s/L is the tangent of one angle; the small board if using them as
indicated here. The other [large board angle cut] is 90 minus that
...or whatever else you want as a total angle, minus that.
It gets trickier when ...the boards need compound angles.
