The Wif and I want to make some small boxes as Christmas (not holiday)
gifts... I have a bunch of redwood 2x6 that would be very nice... What I
want to do is rip the boards at an angle on edge so that the inside faces
will be beveled slightly... Think of a 30 /60 degree triangle for the "end
Ok, now, I'll need to cut either a rabbet or dado in the thicker section for
a box bottom, and a dado in the thinner top section for the box top. How do
I do this and have the cut be square to the outside face? If I cut those
dados on the beveled side of the board, the cheeks of the dados will be
canted when the box is assembled.
I had thought about offsetting the boards after I rip them, and using the
"other board" to keep the inside face at 90 deg when I cut the dado, but
thought I'd post this for remarks.
In ASCII, here's an end view of what hope to do, and convey. The I couldn't
draw the bevel very well, but that's what the slash represents..
