I tell people if you read the directions FIRST and make sure you UNDERSTAND them, then they are INSTRUCTIONS
If you skim the directions and then have to re-read because something isn't right, then they are CORRECTIONS
If you don't understand the directions or you do it the way you think you should, then they are the DISTRUCTIONS

I don't understand that previous post.

Oh well. Here is something to ponder.

Or, in my experience mid 70's , you can work in a plant that bottles toilet cleaner in acid or base configuration. Job was to cap and drop into box for tape up of lid. Glad I knew- know nothing of safe cracking lol

Just a followup on that wacky joint from earlier.

Yup... exactly as I described. Thanks for making the model.

Using patterns to do the layout in the field makes that joint reasonable to do if you either have time or deep pockets. Today, in a shop environment use of CNC machining makes it very doable.

Then again, if that joint isn't protected by wide overhangs it would be susceptible to rot. This as it will collect and trap water. For example, in the model the end grain cuts on the left piece are all but a funnel to guide water into the joint.
