Template Material


I purchased a couple of Adirondack chairs that are not assembled. I want to make templates from them to construct more. What is the best paper/material to use for this? Thanks in advance.

Masonite or even cheap Luan door skins work well.

As willy says... templates for cutting against or more permentent masonite and cheap doorskins.

To draw/trace against, I just use tag board from Wallmart.

Sometimes for big pieces etc, I use my building paper to draw/trace.
