Not only a lamb’s tongue template, but can be used to lay out the whole chamfer!

Guess I’m coming in a little late on this one, but I was goina say Lamb’s Tongue layout template, really, I was.

Actually, I was stumped, but I like the idea of it’s dual purpose marking features. How did you come up with this?, do you have some secret source of woodworking Arts & Mysteries?

As they say … necessity is the mother of invention.  With all of my Prie Dieux I try to come up with some subtle feature/focal point to represent the Trinity. I thought three lamb’s tongue stopped chamfers along the edges of my Reformation era Prie Dieu would achieve such a result and not take away from the furniture style. With that said, I need to lay out twenty four lamb’s tongues … thus the gauge! As I was making my gauge, I thought why limit myself to just one size … thus this version. So, no secret source of woodworking arts nor mysteries … LOL!

Cut my first sets of lamb’s tongues a few weeks ago, and made a tracing from an old post. This would be a much nicer way to get ‘er done. Great post, favorited.

Thanks, Smitty … believe it or not … the drawing took longer than the cherry template!
