I use www.woodbin.com annytime I have a question about the proper dimensions of a project. Hope this helps
I think your referring to the "Golden ratio" just google Golden ratio calculator, there's plenty out there.
hi patrick, i learned and use the 1:1.6 ratio, this ratio is pleasing to the eye and works out rather easy. i have made several pieces with this ratio and they look good, even my shop has about the same ratio. hope this helps and you dont have to search the web to find the ratio. please let me know if this was the ratio you were looking for.
the portion i am ? is top length x width vs leg size i am unsure which calculator on woodbin to use..thanks

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.
