Ever find yourself studying a piece of handmade furniture (of course you do) and you wonder, “how did they get these parts so symmetrical?”
Some woodworking messiahs are just that good.
But for most of us mere mortals, there’s an easy way to create identical parts: Ikea.
Just kidding. I’m talking about woodworking templates.
Templates make repeatability a cinch.
They’re super helpful for parts with curved edges and corners, like the child’s nesting chair I built using templates from my friend Jay Bates (you can get them here).
