Quarter Knee Construction
Quarter Knee Templates
Extra 1-1/2" stock from the Transom used for Quarter Knees.
As seen here the space is tight for the Templates.
If one flips the wood over there is more space due to the bevel angle.
Quarter Knees Layout
Quater Knee layout is traced onto inverted stock.
Quater Knees Cut-Out
Bevelled edges cut on Radial Arm Saw.
Note numbers indicating proper order so that fence can be used against vertical surface.
