Makings some progress again, after getting a little side tracked on the second set of legs
Some may be curious about the rasp that I use for making templates. It is a #49 Nicolson, a.k.a. “pattern maker’s rasp”. It has an irregular tooth pattern that make it cut quickly and easy to control as well. You can see it here . It is a little expensive, but if you plan on doing a lot of templates, it is worth it in the long run.
