Templates or patterns will be required for curved and shaped details, mouldings, etc. These can be cut from thick card. .06 in (1.5 mm) ply or zinc sheet according to the amount of use; while the outlines can be traced with carbon paper, by rubbing the back of the drawing with a soft lead pencil and then tracing through, or by pricking through with a needle. The templates must be dead accurate and carefully sanded or filed to the correct outline, with the position of any abutting member, i.e. rail to leg, pencilled in. A simple card template for a shaped leg is illustrated in 328, and careful setting out will save valuable wood as shown.
