Re: Winter Project: Ship's wheel
I've discovered that cutting a perfect (or even near perfect) Hexagon is proving to be very challenging. Consider that to get a hexagon you have to make 12 cuts to make 6 joints, and if you're only .1 degree off on your cuts, you get 1.2 degrees of deviation and you start to see just how tough this has been. I had to remove my degree pointer on my sliding compound miter saw and sharpen it to give me a more accurate reading.
Anyway, I'm almost at the point where I have the hexagons done, and after that doing the cross pieces should be much less time consuming. Once I'm at that point I'll post pictures.
