1 Cut your blocks from a length of clear, stable hardwood that measures 1 in. square in section. Start with a workpiece at least 24 in. long.

2 Always position a square-cut end of the workpiece against the end stop.

3 When placed together, pairs of compound-angled blocks should form a cube, as shown in the drawing on page 57. Cut test blocks and adjust the end-stop screw until you can form a cube with two blocks. Then cut all 16 blocks.
