Are you ready for some (more) math?  Ovals and eggs (ellipses, if you will) and constructing right angles (isosceles and 30/60) are laid out with the woodworker in mind.

And to top it off there's a flashback (no, not to high school!) to last month's Bevel Cut article about the golden ratio. 

Here, in simple but quadratic terms is the solution for the golden ratio using the golden ratio equation.  Not only does this unlock the ever present golden ratio but it confirms the reason why they teach us this stuff in the first place in high school.  You don't have to be a Euclid (Founder of Geometry), Vitruvius (Architecture), Fibonacci (Nature), Da Vinci (Art) or Kepler (Astronomy) now that Bevel Cut is here. 

Math Redux class starts with a click here.

Andrew welcomes your feedback.
