Well it’s been busy but here is the router pattern I made .
It was planned for yesterday but a friend ask me for a visit to his new place under construction out in the country to measure up some window sills , he has 12” thick walls .
What a beautiful place to build and he has a complete shop there also .
Well on to how I made the pattern .
Two pieces of 1/4” mdf bent around the original form with glue and the cowls for clamping ( sorry forgot the pic ).
I laminated on the form because that way it allows for some spring back as the radius is smaller then the work piece .
Next I drew the pattern onto the laminated router pattern using the original poster board pattern .
Next I cut along the line with the jig saw to remove the waste .
Now for the sanding of the saw cut .
I mounted the pattern to the base blank with three screws leaving it hang over the edge .
The radius sander I build and posted some time ago would not reduce to the proper radius so I improvised by using the the sanding block part only and it worked very well and got a nice perpendicular edge and approval from my apprentice .
Well that is it for today and up next is rough cutting the base and finishing the cuts with the router to final dimensions .
I hope you all have a great weekend ,I sure did .
