Re: DIY Copy carver
Thanks a bunch! There is a lot of good concepts you've put into this bad boy. I'm guessing you plan on doing tops and backs with this. If so, two things that I'd be considering is in lieu of the suggestion John made (which I really like) is a clamping jig. The other thing I'd be kicking around is how to do the setup so that my reference piece and my work piece are positioned consistently after I turn over the pieces to do the other side.
Very neat concept.
If you think you can or think you can't... you're likely right!
