    Bits which comes inner side of frame


    Bits to outer side of the frame


    And then finally outer bits glued together with frame bits.

    you might want to consider getting a strap clamp for those glueing those frames together. it'll greatly simplify your job, here's what it looks like, but you can get them at home depot or lowes for about $9

    I think I might try steaming it and pushing it to be square. You might be able to get the glue to soften just enough to salvage the work you did.

    How is the tripod going?

    Tripod mmm. Going well I think.
    Yes, actually I cut a little bit those all three peaces, cause I realize that I do not need that high tripod. Today I also bought three bolt, cut also a little bit, drilled a hole for that, glued and put that into a center leg. I also bought three rubber things (dont know english word for that, but as soon as I got photo taken, youll see what I mean) to screw to bolt.

    That was great idea, I didn´t needed to go anywhere than my basement, cause I got from there something like what was beyond that link. All I need now is those corners and that´s it. Thank you.

    And yes Murray, you are absolutely right, I should sharpen that blade. ;D

    But, I´ll tell you more tomorrow, now it´s time to quit and go to bed. Tomorrow is again normal working day. See ya.

    Even with a sharp blade, try to make your cuts a continuous movement (but do it safely!). Burns often occur if you stop the feed for some reason, like repositioning your hands.

    Another thing that can cause burns is to have the rip fence not parallel to the blade.

    Also, it might help with the squareness of the mitered corners to make a miter jig. Here is an example: http://www.woodworking-news.com/pdfs/woodmag_table_saw_mitre_jig.pdf

    If your table saw does not have the slots that this jig rides in you can set it up to ride against the edges of the table as long as the blade is parallel to the edge of the table.

    It looks like you're onto a great project. Have fun.

    Thanks Im having fun ;D
    And I also have a Dewalt miter saw to do mitered corners, so that would not be a problem. But now, out to take some photos.
