This is more of a how-to rather than actual cutting templates. The SVG file included is only a sample, you will need to adjust the actual measurements to your stock. The general outline is below, see the pdf file for a more detailed description. 1. Cut the seat top (or bottom) pocket. Test fit the leg and adjust the cut offset for a snug fit. 2. Flip the seat stock vertically and create a grid using the pocket from step 1 as probe 3 (y-probe). Pocket. 3. Cut the back pocket indexing grid (0,0) to the pocket from step #2. 4 and 5. Cut the leg side pockets. 6. Cut the leg front pocket. Attachments: - PDF file with more detailed instructions - Affinity designer file for the sample - Exported svg file
