sneak up on it with small cuts?

Thanks Steve, i use the micro adjust on the Incra to sneak up on it then run all one side, change the set up and do the other side, its not too bad if you pay attention to what you're doing but still a little scary especially on the first couple of cuts.

Would it be easier to use a chamfer router bit instead of adjusting the miter gauge to make sure the end is straight?

You read my mind, they do make a 22 1/2 degree but that I think would work I just haven’t gotten around to buying one yet, great idea

got back in the lamps today after a weekend of working on other woodworking projects. I removed the clamps on the shades and put a rabbit on the inside for the glass and glued the 4 sides together, next was dealing with the top in the center top of the shade, you can see they are at a 30 degree angle3F163143-F629-44CF-A161-9636557FFDC4.thumb.jpeg.dcbb12227c5c45495587b65c2f9b9381.jpeg5BE5FAAF-6F27-4B1D-853E-F550F8056DD2.thumb.jpeg.49cb03152df6e6a15724ce557848748c.jpeg

I started with a 4” square piece 3/4 thick, used the dado to put a 1/4” by 5/8” deep groove a 1/4” down from the top then over to the TS and put a 30 degree bevel on the bottom. I started a little big and snuck up on it to get a good fit, works well because I was not taking off any material from the very top and could reference it against the fenceDF58A483-8FA1-4E00-8B36-7373A4E8ECCF.thumb.jpeg.6367395cbe717233f95d6cc9ece0e90d.jpeg

Thank you for the explanation. I was just trying to figure out why you would use the table saw over the router bit. I understand not wanting to buy more tools for something you'll rarely use. At least with the Incra miter gauge it's easy to accurately adjust.

This build is really crazy. With all the angles I'm pretty sure I'd mess something up!

Thanks for all the great comments guys, the shades definitely pushed my limits and the plan for the base isn’t much better, took today off to get more QS white oak and finish up a paying job. I hope to make more progress on the shades tomorrow then on to the base, thanks for following, keeps me motivated to stay on the saw

Made a little progress today, got the pieces cut for the skirt on the bottom of the shade, it’s not decorative it adds some height for clearance for the light fixture. cranked the blade over 30 degrees to match the angle on the bottom of the shade and cut the bevel then mitered them at 45 deg4A40F1EA-55BB-48D7-9CDB-588615188734.thumb.jpeg.41bfcb83125d181ff5bb73e899f6c4c8.jpegC52C711B-5B61-4DB2-90E6-1F9BECB35572.thumb.jpeg.32d24b1002658cdf78daa8a4b3b447b2.jpeg78BC2C6F-7648-4992-8F9C-407BA5547721.thumb.jpeg.4d8da33846da433c6fbad3133844fb82.jpegrees
