    resizing plans/templets

    I've made a few adirondack chairs and have the mdf templates for cutting and routing all the parts. A friend of mine asked me if I could make one for her daughter (she's 4). Here's my question. What's the easiest way to resize the templates for use for a child size chair?

    Don,

    Thanks I'll look over the drawing and I might just use them. It would save me from straining my brain!


    John,

    Your way is also an idea I hadn't thought of.

    I am trying to figure out the easiest way to resize my big templates down to a child size.
