Tob bar frame insert part II

I really liked the frame insert that I originally built. The only problem was that it took a very long time making all of those angle cuts with a back saw. I had to come up with a time saving solution. Here is a link to the original post for context Top bar nucs

Instead of notching out the top bar to accept the end bars, I’ve cut the end bars at the angle to match the top bar. Then an opposing cut at the same angle to match the bottom bar. I would love to hear some opinions on this design.

Since both angle cuts are the same I’ve set up an angle cutting jig on my table saw sled.

As much as I love hand tools. When I’m batching out a bunch of parts I can count on grandpas old table saw. It’s an old craftsman cast iron body belt drive saw that he used to use. I get to use it in his garage also.

The shop fox fence is something I’ve recently added on to it.
