  1. This is probably a silly question but I'm new to woodworking and just wanted to know how you measure the length of your angled legs? I recently built a tabletop and two tapered legs at "27 inches" or so i thought (angled at 20 degrees) to add on to my Ikea cabinet and the legs came up about 4.5 inches too short. I've been researching and I can't seem to find a straight forward easy to understand method to doing this, aside from using a construction master calculator (which I barely understand). Needless to say, any help would be greatly appreciated.
