Re: Tell me how to build a triangle gable vent
How you build it will depend on your abilities, tools, and desired outcome. Is the triangle equilateral or more pyramid shape?
I would recommend box joints, this will make the angles easier to calculate and cut, and aid in assembly. A box joint is simply placing the end grain of one board against the side grain of the next.
Cutting the proper angles accurately will be your most difficult task, since saws only cut to 45*, and not the tighter necessities of a triangle.
Once you figure out the angle issues, then it will be slat placing and camber, the easiest way to do this equally and repeatably is to cut blocks to lay the slats on, Basically, you're going to have a side piece, between that you will place the slats (louvers ), then you'd alternate slat, block, slat, block, and so on until you got to the top.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
