263552 "Maddex, Peter" <peter.maddex@n...> 2017‑10‑14 Re: Another project question
Thanks for the kind comments.


Its nothing but a box with a couple of long sides and an arm.

I did have to use pythagoras to work out the distance across the arm for the
pivot.

It was made to go at side of a settee and reach over, but you could make one to
any size.


Question for assembled glooterati, I can't think of hand tool way to cut a
circular dado to make a lazy susan like in the lamp base.

Subject: Re: [OldTools] Another project question

In my last note I mentioned that there are plenty of people on this list whose
skill is light years beyond anything I’d undertake, and as I hit “send” here’s
an example of what I was talking about……

I will mention that having a son who is a mathematician comes in awful handy. He
has worked out things like this for me (including translating scale ratios in
the process) but when I look at this kind of complex joinery I content myself to
just enjoy the math.

Now I feel like I have to go practice my saw cuts and chisel work. :)

top to bottom.  It would be made of four pieces of q-sawn stock  in the old way
so that each side shows medial ray fleck.  Being long edges, it can be clamped
and glued, thus limiting tricky joinery.

tapering.  The closest I have come to this is in coopering, but with that I felt
my way into the angles with a paper pattern and a sliding T-bevel, and it was a
single angle throughout, with no taper.  Here, I don't know where to start.
Looked on-line and there is a page with a calculator for pyramids etc., but it
is for a table saw which I don't use, and gives angles I don't quite follow.
You would think that the angle of the bade to the table would be the one I need
to plane my angles, but I can't quite see how to get that number from that
calculator.
