Well I've been trying out my new Craftsman 22114 and I love it. It kicks my buddy's Dewalt jobsite saw's butt all day long. Here's some pics of the first things I made, I hope I got this attaching figured out...

First, I made a sliding box-over for my fence. Then I made a wonderful little picture frame jig that I can clamp to the box. Let me know what you think.

Testing the Jig

Just to test the jig out to make sure everything turned out square, I cut some 3/4 hardwood plywood and this is what I got. Looks like good tight joints to me.

Very clever!!

I guess you stick your frame pieces Right, on bottom and Left, on top to get complimented cuts... Must add to 90* Right?

Actually, you could have the angles set off a little... 30 / 60... cut the pieces the same way and still end up with a nice 90* corner... it would sure make one to look at it and study it for awhile... wouldn't it?!
Come to think of it, the angles would work, but the length of the angles would vary making it look bad... just thinking off the top & typing...

Nice JIG!!

Nice saw!

Nice saw!
Thanks Joe! I think you would have to make different width sides and tops to get the 30/60's to work, but it certainly would make for a conversation piece!! I think the sliding box for my fence is going to come in real handy. It's like having a movable miter slot!! The next project is a crosscut sled and then I'm pretty set to do the closet organizer, the picture frames, the bedside tables, the blanket chest, and a few military retirement shadow boxes..... WHEW!!! Too much to do and not enough money to buy the wood!!!

I lke that picture frame idea Joe! You could make it oversized and after you joined it all together you could run it through the table saw to make the widths uniform all the way around and you would have these misplaced, funky angles that matched up perfecty. Cool!

Here is some more to think about... A new twist...

Have the bottom corners mitered at the normal 45/45...
Cut the top corners @ 30/60...
Trim up as mentioned...

The top corners would look a little more streamlined... wouldn't they?

OK, who is going to play with this and show us the results?

I nominate Stick... he started all this! :yes:
... he has the jig ready to go...

I just thought of something...
All you'd have to do to get the 30/60 cuts would be to insert a triangular wedge between the regular 45/45 jig and the Box Fence to change the angles... Piece of cake! Yes!??

Isn't this FUN when we can think of such strange and goofy things... that just might look good after it's done?! :eek:

Hey!!! I'm still trying to master the 45's, and I don't think my wife wants me "goofing off" with projects outside the honey-do list!! Well... maybe I'll give it a shot if I get a chance this weekend. I'm half way done with the closet organizer, so when I finish it I'll play with the jig.
