Now, if you don't have a miter saw that'll go up to that angle, which most don't you can just use a simple speed square. To get the angle, let me show you how we do it all right soon your speed square, you have these angles and right here, I'm going to mark where 65 degrees is so you can see it a little bit better, but basically, you're gonna. Take your gonna find the point that you want to be your point and then you roll this speed square.
You pivot it or about that point until you line up 65 degrees down here long ways, so then you'll just mark a line right across there and there you have a 65-degree line. So now that we've got our two by twos, cut down or mitered down at each end, exactly how we want them now I've gone ahead and set them into the sides. I've just basically taken the top and the bottom pieces and set everything in place, not assembled, but I've set these in there how we want them overlapping and then I'll strike a line on both sides and that'll.
Tell me where I need to cut the groove to for that half lap joint, then I'll, head on over to the table, saw and using my miter gauge or miter jig rather I'll, go ahead and cut down that groove into each one of those side pieces. That way that I can come together will glue and then nail those together, all right for the legs. You don't really have to do the full half lap joint. The table turned out great. It definitely adds, as you can see, four more seats to this downstairs basement. That is now finished.
