I like starting in the corner a measure one inch at the bottom and at the top three inches then i make my lines. I then make a house shape at the top right i measure inch and a half on each side and one inch down and then one inch across.
Step 2: Using the band saw
then i slowly cut at my marks
Step 3: Using the beltsander
now that you cut out your arm then you would take it to the belt sander and smooth out all edges
