Building a wooden sun lounger

Step 2: Making the wheel template

making the wheel template

First make a rotatable arm. Do this by cutting a strip of card or a thin piece of wood about 3/8" (10mm) wide by 6" (150mm) long, which is slightly longer than the required radius.

Insert a push pin or small nail through the arm 5" (125mm) from one end. Pin the arm to a sheet of card.

Rotate the arm in a circle using the push pin/nail as the pivot point.

Hold a pencil at the end of the rotating arm to mark the circle.

Once marked, remove the arm and cut out the circle.
