|Strut against backboard w/ Jig attached.|

up on the table top.
With the jig built, I moved it to the work table and positioned it per the plans. After some shimming and leveling, the strut is aligned such that the LE of the strut falls exactly 9.25" in front of the back edge of the jig. This further aligns the strut and jig in such a way that all four attach points should be at the same distance above the table. This then allows you to locate the rear attach points based on the measurements of the front points you already located.
|Level Baby !|
|Complete setup, level both directions, |
LE at the right spot, and braces to help keep it there.
This all looked complicated at first but it's actually pretty simple and I think rather ingenious. Now it's ready to build the attachment points.
