I designed this little tea table (like a coffee table, but smaller). I got the top glued up and then realized I really didn’t know how to repeatably drill the compound angle holes for the legs.
Enter: Onefinity (+ some CAM)
I went back to CAD and used the very same compound plane which I used to draw the legs to slice a block.
I used some carpet tape to stick a fixture block to my compound angle wedge.
Clamped the whole mess into the drill press and hogged out a hole of the appropriate size.
I know this isn’t the standard finished product that most people post, but I wanted to share how some creative thinking and a fantastic CNC machine helped me make a drill guide fixture that would have otherwise been extremely tricky.
Happy making everyone
