Need some quick help with coffin angles.


I have a friend that's building a small coffin and he can't figure out the right angles to set his saw to to achieve these cuts. (A, B and C)

any help?
thanks!

Geometry sucks. Do you have the dimensions of all five sides. If you do then it is pretty easy ( I think).

Here's a typical layout.

1 & #2 = 49 degrees each
#3 = 80 degrees
#4 = 76 degrees
#5 & #6 = 53 degrees each

(Subtract from 90 to get the opposite angles for saw settings...... or JLHASLIP will soon have them shown here for you.)

Bisect the angles and those would be the cuts.
Lengths would be the outside corners.
