Corners and angles

HI there,

can someone please tell me how to make three timber sticks join in 90 degree angle? Similar to XYZ axis, I need to know the cutting angle for each, using a mitre saw.

Thanks for the help

divide the angle you want by the number of pieces, 2 pieces =45deg, 3 pieces =30deg.

to have all 3 perpendicular to each other like and XYZ coordinate base, just put two 45 degree cuts on each one, rotating each 90 degrees between cuts.

This seems so simple that I think perhaps I'm misunderstaning your question.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Right. You read it as 2D, I read it as 3D. XYZ implies 3D.

If this is the look he's shooting for, I think it might seem to be a tad more involved to him than just a couple of 45 whacks.

It's basically what phinds said, but it looks like this for, perhaps, a little better visualization.

BTW, DIYLover, all three pieces are identical. It really is almost as simple as phinds indicated.

Thumbs up Thanks

Gentlemen,

Thanks for the prompt response, it is actually a 3D visualization, so a 45 degree cuts, with 90 degree round, I am done now, thanks to all, and all the best

That was really impressive. How long did it take to put together the post with the visual aid?

About four to five minutes. It's "SketchUp", and it's free from Google.

Thyanks, I checked out SketchUp. I'm using windows 2000, it won't work with my system.
