Today found me off work early so I headed into the garage. I found some ideas for projects that others might like and could be easy enough to make in quantity.

I blew up the plans to working size on the computer then printed out what I needed. Made some modifications to the drawings then traced them onto cardboard. Finally cut them out so I have templates that will last a while.

Note to self -- DON'T USE THICK CARDBOARD! I finally had to use the band saw to cut out the templates. Good part of that is that I got to practice how I will make the cuts and not destroy the blade or the wood. Bad part was I have no idea what cutting cardboard will do to a saw blade.
