    Jay,

    Got a question about Bellows Board B. It's impossible to tell from the drawing if there are three short "stiffeners" at each end, or two separated by a space. Your photos are a great help, but unfortunately, that part is already assembled, so I can't see the inside.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    Brian I used 2 spaced 3/4" apart and it has worked out just right for me.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Does it sound like I'm in my shop today?

    And the questions just keep coming...

    That 1/4" notch on Boards A, C & D, it's 1/4" by what exactly? No dimension is given. The full scale drawing is not exactly what you'd call precise. Could be 2". Could be 1 15/16."

    Since I can't tell how critical it's likely to be before I try to assemble the pieces, it would be nice to know.

    Thanks again,

    L. Skywalker

    Brian look at the drawing on page #3 see the line going all the way through there by part "D" that's where you cut too look on the video and it shows it also.

    I screwed mine together and then made the cuts on the table saw as an assembly and it worked real nice. Will post picture of it later today.

    Great shots, Jay... and again, very helpful.

    Is that oak you used for the stiffeners?

    The cut for the 1/4" ply... dado on the tablesaw?

    No its Maple.
    I just used the regular saw blade and the miter gauge with a tall fence and clamped it to it on end made the cut then lowered blade and made the other cut with it setting on edge
