Making a Walnut Pool and Billiard Ball Rack
Turns out making a billiard rack was a bit more challenging than I originally expected. The three main pieces are joined together at 60 degree angles. To cut these angles I use my table saw sled and a 60 degree triangle as a guide to push it through the blade. Technically once you glue up the three pieces you have a working billiard rack but this makes the rack too big to fit into the holder in my pool table. To allow me to cut the corners down I added some reinforcement triangles in each one of the corners. This also gives me plenty of glue surface which eliminates the need for splines.
