This weekend I am going to be designing & building a stool for my 2 year old son. If it works out, I may be making a few for different people.
I have 1/4 in MDF that I plan to use as a pattern for the sides of the stool.
I plan on using a pattern bit on my router table to refine a rough cut of the sides pieces of the stool (the sides will be made of 3/4 in poplar plywood) . This way I should be able to duplicate the stool fairly easily.
I was going to make a sample pattern and try it out before I do the real thing, just to get used to doing it.
I have never done pattern routing before. If anyone has any tips or suggestions, it would be appreciated.
