So I have been using my Maslow for about a month now, and I’ve been making numerous test cuts for various ways to make one design. Here’s the shape I’m trying to create:
But, it’s going to be a leg for an end table and it has to hold some weight, so I cut it in three pieces like so:
At first I tried to make a joint between the leg and the crosspiece that resembles a dovetail, or maybe a jigsaw puzzle piece, but none of the tests fit after I cut them. (They all fit together perfectly in Fusion) I don’t have pictures of those because they were cluttering up my workspace and I threw them away. Next I tried a pocket type joint that mostly fit:
(Ignore the notch out of the right side of the leg - the piece I cut it from was a little too small) This might have been a winner, except for the curve at the bottom outside corner of the pocket. On the leg piece, it cut really well:
But on the crosspiece, it looks like the Maslow cut in too deep on the bottom edge.
The curve is supposed to be tangent to both the edge of the pocket and the bottom of the piece. I have been pulling my hair out from this, has anyone else had a similar experience who could help? The other issue I’ve been having is with cutting tabs. When I use Fusion to cut tabs, I get weird dimples on either side of where the tab was after I remove it.
I could sand these out so it’s not a huge issue, but it’s definitely not supposed to do that so can anyone help?
