    After the amount of time and work I have put in to rewiring my cab I can't imagine what I'd do if that happened. The kid would regret it, thats for sure.

      Sure, no probs

      Any preference which one first mate?

      All of them?!?

      I'm probably going to need the Angled cutting of timber first (I'm planning a Surface Tension rip off made out of Eucalypt).

      Followed by Hinges technique.

      Cheers!!

        Regarding the cutting a base or angle square, it is possible to use an out-of-square square to get a perfect angle. This only works with a square that can be flipped over. Many T-squares are no good for this reason.

        1. Draw your line using the set square.
        2. Flip the square over.
        3. On the same face and edge, draw another line starting from the same point where you draw the first one.

        If your two lines are not perfectly true with one another you'll have ended up with two unparallel lines stemming from a point, like a very long isosceles triangle with a very short base.

        4. Where this 'triangle's base' should be, disect the line
        5. Draw a line from the point where the lines meet to the point of the disected 'triangle'.

        Voila! If you did it carefully, you'll have a perfect 90? corner. This relies on a very straight edge to start with though so be sure of this first. Whenever I'm doing panel work I always make sure I have one corner perfecly square on a sheet and make all cuts and lines referencing these two edges. To identify this corner I draw a little square on it denoting it's a right angle. Provided your panel saw is square, you can be confident all other cuts will be square after this.

        The above technique also works for spirit levels that are out of square.
