Cutting template for Welsh stick chair seat bases

Postby 4crosses » Wed Aug 19, 2015 9:01 am

Does anyone know where I can obtain some templates for Welsh stick chair seat bases? I need to mark the right size and shape, together with the location of the four leg drill holes and auger drilling sightlines. Thanks.

I don't think there is a specific template. I just do a shape that pleases me, often dictated by the wood I have. I like to locate the legs well in from the edge, so giving them a good splay. But it's all a matter of choice.
