Once the template has been traced onto the hardwood to outline two identical pieces, cut out the two pieces using a band saw. Cut close to the outlines but not directly on the outline, as the cut will need to be cleaned up with a sander in the next step of these free woodworking plans. If the cut is too close to the line, sanding will leave the part smaller than outlined.
When making some of the sharp cornered cuts, be sure to use relief cuts to ease tension on the band saw blade. Forcing too sharp of a corner on the band saw can easily snap the blade.
