Would like to build some QuaDror joints
« on: February 27, 2011, 01:36 AM »
Just thought this was a nifty joint and would like to make 10-20 of them to play around with.  Has anyone else seen/tried this? Any suggested dimensions?

Really clever!

What are the angles in the component?

Good question, wish I knew the 'real' answer.  I used 15 degrees with my sample and it seems to sit reasonably well (given I did it with a scroll saw).
