Step 5: Cut Out the Pieces

Picture of Cut Out the Pieces
Next you need to cut out the pieces from the single sheet of plywood if you have glued all of the template pieces down on one sheet.

With the 16-inch tall dino I started by cutting the single piece into smaller manageable pieces with 4 or 5 dino pieces on each piece of wood.  That makes it much easier and safer to cut out the smaller pieces.

With the 48-inch tall dino I started by cutting all of the individual pieces out of the one single piece of plywood.

Once you are done cutting out the pieces you will need to peel the remaining template paper off of the wood.  You will need to give the pieces a light sanding on the faces of the piece and a little on the edges to remove the sharp corners.
