Carving out some time (ha ha)...

Since I completely lack the artistic sense that Marc talked about in one of the videos, I went about preparing for the carving a bit differently.  I need training wheels...definitive lines to work to and from.  The holes are a great idea but I feared inadequate for me.  So I built a template jig and routed the profile on the outer couple inches or so of each side.  This way I could work from these lines toward the center and I'd be able to see exactly where I needed to go.
