Plans for the PassageMaker should be on my doorstep when I get home sometime this week. I went plans rather than kit so I could throw boat bucks at the project as they appear, rather than saving for the whole enchilada. So I am thinking the first step is transferring the patterns to the plywood and cutting them out. A few questions:
- What is the best tool? I have a cheap jigsaw, should this be upgraded?
- Is the Japanese pull saw suggested for this to get the full zen like experience?
- Is transfer paper the way to go for getting the patterns on the ply?
- Do you cut the line, or just shy of it and follow up with s plane and/or sandpaper?
Thanks in advance. I have been lurking on this site for over a year now and am excited about finally putting metal to wood.
