Cutting Acute Angles At The Table Saw (Tenoning Jig) #woodworking

Cutting Acute Angles At The Table Saw (Tenoning Jig) #woodworking

How do you cut a 60 degree bevel for a mitre? You could use a mitre bar on the table saw, or even a mitre saw, but you’ll be limited by the capacity of the blade on both tools – about 75mm/3″ & 150mm/5″ for both.

Using a super-sized tenoning jig, you can easily cut 500mm on acute angles.

    What is the countersinking bit/device that you used @ 3:17?

    For US viewers this jig is also excellent for making the display case for the flag given to veterans families. It requires a 67.5 degree angle and this makes it easy.

    Thumbs Up! 😀

    I wish I had seen your video before making a jig that would hold boards at an angle so I ended up with a 60 degree bevel. Yours seems much easier to use! Well, time to go tell my wife I need to make a better jig!!

    I would read an audio book from you

    I have watched this four times and I can’t work out how you’re getting the 60 degrees without tilting the board. It looks like the fence is 90 to the table but just huge. What am I missing?

    Nice jig. It can also be used for large 90 degree tenon cheeks, if you want.

    Hey Paul! I’ve never had the need to cut such a bevel but if I did, especially an end cut on plywood as in your project, I believe I’d try to make a wedged base for my track saw. It seems like it wouldn’t be that difficult to tilt the track up 15 degrees in order to achieve a 60 degree bevel.

    Really cool idea and build. Looking forward to how future Paul, or is it present Paul; you YouTubers and your time travel make things too confusing. Anyways, looking foward to seeing how these Hexorage(TM) units turnout.
