Excerpt from Preface
Patterns and Templates Many plans in this book require odd-shaped parts that can't be made using straight cuts on a table saw. Making these parts requires drawing the outline of the contours on the stock, then cutting or sanding the block of wood to shape. Odd pieces are drawn in the plans either with 1/2" -square grids or with detailed measurements, and there are several ways to get the pattern of your piece from the plans to the wood itself.
