Transferring the profile to the template
Transferring the profile (shape) to the template
Once the three different size circles have been cut out of card as shown on the previous page, they can be used to mark the curves on the template.
For the template, cut a piece of card 975mm (38 3/8″) long x 150mm (6″) wide.
Cut the angle cuts (i.e. not the curved shapes) as per dimensions shown in the ‘Chair Frame Detail’ plan in the How to build a Cape Cod Chair project.
The card template should so far look like this…
Use the card circle with the 150mm (6″) radius to mark curve ‘C’.
See fig.2 and fig.3.
Use the card circle with the 135mm (5 1/4″) radius to mark curve ‘A’.
See fig.2 and fig.4.
As the curves are marked, they can be cut.
See fig.2 and fig.5.
