Require assistance to cut angles ............. stock is one inch
by one & a half inch by 76 inch long. Trying to figure out angles to
make these three legs join at a hub. (top) The base width is not
crucial but needs to tolerate winds & snow load. Plan to install
lights. Have SCMS & TS to cut. Help TIA.
Hold one of the legs at the angle you want it to lean at, draw a line
from the very top point vertically down. Cut along that line, cut the
other two legs to match. Each piece now has a single flat bevel at one end.
Set the tablesaw to 30 degrees and run the leg through so that you take
a bevel cut along the vertical cut you just finished. You'll need to
run each leg through twice, once for either side. The bevel cut lines
should intersect along the middle of the board.
Lean them all together, and you should be set.
