Subject:

these calculations are not quite correctResponse To:

Arithmetic question () Bill Tindall, E.Tn.

They tacitly assume an infinitely thin leg or one that doesn't set flat on the floor. A leg with thickness must have an angle cut on each end to sit flat on the floor and intersect the bottom of whatever. Hence, the cross section will be a parallelogram with a center line being the length others have calculated but the starting length that this leg is cut from must be longer. The correct blank length can be calculated by those familiar with geometrical calculations but in this case......draw it out.
