comment How can I make seamless upholstered chair pads?
Do you see any problems with the pleats being thicker than the non-pleats in the fabric, leaving a gap between the wood-fabric-wood sandwich in some place?

comment Removing angled section from edge of board?
No glue. The mechanism for attachment is outside the scope of this question. I'm just looking for how to make the groove.

@MichaelKaras same material as the green colored part.

I was hoping to use a dado blade twice with the board in the normal orientation, rather than standing it up on edge. Or just finding a saw that will adjust to 60 degrees.

Can you link to one? I've seen them for half this angle, for routing both boards, but not for the notch shown here in just one board.

comment What unpowered bladed tool can make deep beveled cuts in sheet material?
@DaveTweed the sheets are too big for any hot wire cutter's arm, and even if I replace the blade with a hot wire, I still need a device to hold the wire at the appropriate angle while I move it.

comment How can I remove a lockset latch assembly that's stuck latched?
@Mazura the way that that makes it harder is by forcing you to use a different method...

It is the kind of latch with the little extra half-cylinder latch bit that stops the credit card trick from working.

The latch is not binding against the strike. It's rather free, with a good 2-3mm of wiggle on the door (into the weatherstripping on the other side of the doorjamb). I am aware that only the small bits inside the top right and bottom right corners of the (| opening are supposed to move to the right to unlatch it.
