Templates

I finally decided to make some templates for drilling the holes in the wine chimes. I mark all of the pieces with a paint marker, but sometimes they still don't come out even. I still want them to look "hand crafted" not machine made, but a little more consistent.
Doug was cutting 2x4's for a project he was working on, so I asked if he had leftover wood to cut some small pieces for me.

So hopefully these save me a little bit of time and the holes are a little more uniform.
The "P" side is for the Pinnacle bottles - they are a little wider. Obviously the "W" is for wine bottles.
