« Part 2: Template Solution: Opposite Man Part 3 of Weather Station: The Next Generation series Part 4: Drill Here, Drill Now »

Here’s the process I used to make the new style templates. First I use the top level template from Blog 1 with the graph paper still attached. I ripped three 3/4” scraps to the desired height and ganged them together. The stop is set on the square so I only have to rotate the piece to get a matching cut the same distance from the other edge. These two initial cuts set the width of the middle spacer that determines the separation of the wings.

And here’s the stack after the table saw.

Then its off to the bandsaw to cut the angles.

Keep the set taped together for a little filing and sanding and they are ready to use.

Next up “Drill Here Drill Now”.
