These are Squares. Three of them actually.
We decided to make a simple shelf to hold some of Lily and Leif’s pretty projects. These are some of the tools we used.
Talking about the concept of Square. The idea of a 90 degree angle is a pretty powerful tool. With a little bit of geometry, you can design and lay out virtually anything of any shape. All based on the 90 degree angle or Square.
Squaring all the way around the board. Getting the end of the shelf stock all the way Square.
Using a Back Saw to make a nice smooth cut. It has a ridgid back (top) which holds the blade nice and straight. It works best to use an exacto-knife first to prevent the good side of the cut from tearing out.
Freehanding the curve for the shelf’s support.
Using a Coping Saw for the curved shelf support.
The almost finished project. Dad had to go back to work before we got a chance to put it all together and up on the wall. We’ll have to finish it one of these evenings.
