Another base design question--check my process?
I need to design and build this base. I know that the faces each need two 60* faces cut into them so that they can be glued together.
My plan, for now, is to glue up the three leg assemblies, two pieces each, joined with floating tenons.
Then with a sled, cut all the feet to the same angle and the tops to the same angle.
To get those 60* cuts on the joining faces, I'm thinking of a sled to hold the leg assemblies in place to run them over the table saw blade set at 60*.
By sled I mean a piece of plywood that runs against the fence with stops screwed to it to hold the pieces in place, just like what you'll see in just about any Foureyes video on YouTube.
Any thoughts or suggestions? See any flaws with my thinking?
