Tell us about yourself!
Thank you soo much for the idea! We have several apple trees and lots of apples, but very little time to cook, so we want to make the most of it. Most will be cider, and some will be dried, but there has to be at least one "apple pie"! This will be perfect for Saturday morning breakfasts.
I was a little surprised about putting a glass jar in the freezer. I would be afraid I would forget it and it would get broken. Maybe a Mason jar would be strong enough as long as it wasn't too full. Does anyone know?
Welding Tools and Materials
Thanks for the pointers! Your method is good, but I find it simpler (no square, no pencil) to trim two pieces and test fit them. I shave both pieces just like your first cut, repeating until they fit flush.
Use the pieces your want to join as templates to mark each other, then cut inside the lines with a handsaw almost to the halfway point. Make several cuts so that the remaining stock is easy to chip out with a chisel. Then either chisel or sand the bottom of each part until the joints are flush. When sanding a joint like this, use a hard block with sandpaper wrapped around it, and sand both parts at once to keep them the same. You could also do the same joint with a router, gradually increasing the depth until the joint fits flush.
