Angle for Chair Leg Holes
Q: How does one find the angle to drill holes into a chair seat for legs or back slats?
I'm sure you could make a jig or find a fancy tool for this, but I use one of nature's finest instruments: my eye. It is amazing what you can do with a good "line-of-sight" when drilling in legs and stretchers on chairs. Mark the height on the legs and the correct spots on the seats, and then just use your trained eye. You'll amaze yourself after a little practice.
