Post box lid drawing

This is in part of the "cool box, not mine" thread.

Tom, Bj, and others, I've done my best to try to show what I was thinking. I appologize for poor quality of the the pic, using a program not used to. But I think, hope you will get the idea. Again, only need to hold down the template to the work piece and, it can be any size. It just depends on what is called for. Size of guide, size of slot in template... not sure how more I can describe this.

Opinons please.

Hi Ken

Real close, here's a hint see below

============
KEN

Add On Tip,,, look at the last snapshot real hard,,,it takes TWO templates to get the job done
Once you see it you will say, OK GOT it it's one of the best ones I have got from Tom..and it's FUN to make and you can use it on many things (pattern) once you see how it works (box lids,cabinet doors,drawers,etc. ) and the best thing about this one is once you see how it works and the rest of Tom's designs /templates fall into place in your mind.

Hi Hamlin. I think your template will work but there is one place I think will be tough to not to make a mistake. Coming off that one corner outlined in red will be easy to blow by it or to fall into the slot going up etc. Tricky corner.

Great to see you having an attempt at the problem. I do see one problem at the cross-over where you may loose control of the cutter as the guide will want to go round the corner.

Keep it up and I still think it will require two templates to ensure a straight cut especially at the intersection. keep your guides small enough when using a small cutter. You may find I am correct when you make the template. You can only but try. I would be interested in the possibility of using only one template.
Ken have you had a great deal of experience with the guides and female templates?

Ken I nearly lost this posting any reason fro not including it with the others which would mean a follow-on progression to the original postings. Maybe Mark can add it where it should belong.

Tom, last time I used templates of any kind was waaay back in high school shop class. So, this is going to be either a "relearning" experience or a "remembering" one.

I understand and see everyone's concern about the corners... as I stated in first post w/pic. I was using a program not familar with, so, the drawing isn't exactly how the template will be. I will be heading into town to pick up some supplies. I will be making my attempt at this, this weekend. I'll post pics, etc. Right now, I'm seeing the template clearly in my head, it's just difficult for me to draw it up for anyone else to see until it's actually done, (if that makes any sense).

I will shoot Mark a pm about what, where to place the post. I agree, it can get lost.

Bj, if you do ever get the pics I sent ya, disregard them, ( I emailed them twice but, they always arrive way too slow, I don't know why). After some rest and sleep, I woke up this am, reworked the template. I'm going to take pics and attempt to post them up.

Tom, everything I did with the template I did with just eye work, no measuring. There are still some errors in it but, others with higher skills than I can most likely "fine-tune" it.
