Here is the lamination’s of the form and I will show how I draw out the cut lines
I start with transferring the centre line from the form to the laminated blank .
I use a sheet of poster board as a square and place it along the centre line on which I have the width of the table base marked out .
I then tape the poster board to the base and draw a perpendicular line toward the bottom of the base and double check the distance top and bottom and also mark the bottom edge of the base which I established by measuring the height with a framing square from the centre line and then marking the ends with a straight edge (sorry but no pic of this) . .
Next I form the arch along all four edges by making a pattern with a hardwood strip and get the approval from my apprentice when he is satisfied with the curve .
( see pic )
Next I cut the curve with a knife and draw the lines in all four locations following the pattern .
This is a very simple process with the poster board as it will bend and follow the curve of the base nicely and is much easier to use then a metal square and all the necessary lines can be done with one piece and now I can use the poster board to make my router pattern which will be part 3 of this blog .
That is it for now .
Stay safe and comment and criticize all you like I can take it !
