    Hey Rob,

    Any chance you could upload a full scale image of the profile you're using. I'm considering a shorter version of the bench.

    Thanks

    Hi Maz,

    Rob's bench closely resembles the Enfield Shaker Meeting House Bench.  I've search google looking for a profile shot to no avail.  Perhaps we can get Rob to send me an image of the template profile traced on a 1/2" grid so that I can make a Sketchup drawing to post?

    Carry on.

    Maz, there is an opportunity to capture the profile for the top of the seat in Episode 3.  At 15:55 of the video there is a decent shot of the end of the workpiece with the ink mark tracing of the final profile.  Do a freeze frame and take some measurements from your monitor.  From that point you can use ration calculations to the actual dimensions quoted by Rob in earlier episodes.  Seeing that this is a hand cut profile, you can probably get close enough to the actual profile to create a template for the top.  The end profile is a different matter.

    Carry on.

    Larry
