      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Finished Carpentry Question - Ripping a board at an angle

Recommended Posts

I have a 1" x 4" pine board (80" long) that I need to rip for some trim work that I am doing. The top width has to be a little narrower than the bottom width if that makes sense (top needs to be 2 3/4" and the bottom has to be 3 1/4"). I'm trying to compensate for a wall that isn't straight.

I have a basic table saw. Any tips on how to accomplish this? I'm in the cities, so would also be open to bringing it somewhere if anyone has a recommendation.

that's a pretty simple chore. Just make your marks from wide to narrow, draw a line with a straight edge or snap a chalk line and cut it with your circular saw. If you want to you can screw the waste side of the board to you saw horses to secure it while you are making the cut.

I would draw the line instead of using the chalk line. The chalk has a tendency to blow off when you get the spinning circular saw near it which makes it harder to see. The entire line won't blow away but enough to make it tricky.

cut upside down, cause the blade will chip the top surface while cutting. just make sure to mark the board accordingly!

Cut is a little proud of the line then fine tune it with a hand plane.

That will work as long as the cut is a fairly straight one.

If this cut going against a wall or ceiling chances are it will be wavy.

If you want a tight fit that follows the irregularities then use a compass to transfer the profile to the board. Clamp your work, set your circular saw table so you have a slight backcut. Leave the line.

Since the line will be wavy use a belt sander perpendicular to the cut. You'll also keep the angle of the backcut and sand to the line. It'll take the material down fast so watch it.

    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
