Carve Greene and Greene details easily with a router and jig.Much of the furniture found in the Gamble House living room has a cloud lift pattern detail on all four sides, along with a carved pattern matching this detail. The cloud lift shape can be accomplished by template routing, but the corresponding carving requires a few more steps.

To produce repeatable results I created a routing template that uses a 3/8” guide bushing and ¼” core bit. To create the template, use a ½” piece of MDF or Plywood that is large enough to support your router, allow for the router to travel and not touch the clamps you will use to clamp it and the piece down.

Steps to make this template from the left side:

step 1

1. Transfer the 45 degree cloud lift pattern found in your part to the template

 

Draw a line 7/16” up that connects to your angle and another line 3/8” above this line

2. Draw a line 7/16” up that connects to your angle and another line 3/8” above this line

3. Draw a line 14/16” up ending at your angle and another line 3/8” above this line

3. Draw a line 14/16” up ending at your angle and another line 3/8” above this line

4. Align a ruler to the 45 degree angle line, make ticks marks ½” up and another 3/8” above that and connect them with your square and intersect them with your lower lines set at 45 degrees

4.
