Shaping the arm

Outline the appropriate cutting pattern (page 65) on one arm blank, then cut the notch at the back end of the blank that will enable the arm to fit around the rear leg. To ensure the inside surfaces of the arm and rear leg will align, hold the blank in position and mark a line along the top face of the blank that parallels the leg's inside face (right). Cut the arm to shape on your band saw, then use a router to round over all its edges, except for those that define the notch. Use the first arm to outline the opposite one.
