    Ok! So, almost one year after I'm going to resume the operation "homemade bridge".

    I'll actually start over. I didn't like the angle of the edge I pointed out and the sharp corner in the middle of the plate.

    This time I'll also use this aluminum profile.

    And I didn't saw until both sawing lines met.

    I stoped earlier and broke the piece of. I wanted to sand a bigger and smoother radius where the two diagonals meet.

    It looks like Aluminum channel, but I wonder if that size is common or if you have to go to some kind of specialty store for that?

    I'd try stopping by a place that puts in store fronts, they will have scrap like that.
