You inspiring me/us again and again and again ! Reply Everfalling says: June 12, 2017 at 9:31 am Styrene is a great material. It can be bent with heat too. You see it used a lot in vacuforming.

I use my draw knife and rasp to take wood off bow limbs . Reply Stelios Stavrinides says: June 12, 2017 at 9:38 am excellent tip Paul as always, thank you… any idea what type of plastic is the one you use?

Reply TornTech says: June 12, 2017 at 9:49 am paul any tips on the best place to find this type of plastic? previously when I have looked it's usually only available in big 8ft x 4ft sheets if you want it at a reasonable price. Reply Jerry Rathbone says: June 12, 2017 at 11:22 am Great ideas Reply 221Dw says: June 12, 2017 at 11:42 am Anyone know a source for these in the UK? Reply Phil Lavender says: June 12, 2017 at 11:52 am It's called polypropylene plastic which he failed to mention, and decent art store will stock this stuff or ebay etc Reply Jonnie Johnson says: June 12, 2017 at 12:05 pm Paul….your a legend, well done! Reply BF Florida says: June 12, 2017 at 12:21 pm One word… BRILLIANT Reply Richard Leon says: June 12, 2017 at 12:36 pm To those people asking where to buy these styrene sheets, I have always been able to find them in model railway shops. The brand I buy is Plastruct. Reply martino amello says: June 12, 2017 at 1:38 pm Note to self: Get organized and start keeping files instead of reinventing the wheel every time..Nice idea Paul and I shall do this soon. Reply IanRM says: June 12, 2017 at 1:51 pm Thanks, Paul. Ian, UK subscriber. Reply Nikola Wiche says: June 12, 2017 at 2:08 pm Here's a tip for anyone looking to try this out, as everyone is going to asking about the plastic and where they might get some: Hold on to the lids of ice cream containers, yogurt containers, and assorted other plastic food packaging that has good flat spots you can cut out, as I find that plastic to be perfectly acceptable to work with like this. Milage will vary of course, such containers are in no way universal across the world, between brands, and so on. Reply Marc’s Fx says: June 12, 2017 at 2:16 pm Another great learning episode Paul, many thanks 👍🏼😊 Reply Chauncey Mitchell says: June 12, 2017 at 3:31 pm Very informative as usual. I would love to see a tutorial on how you do your hand drawings. I do all my drawings by hand too. Keep up the good work I look forward to your videos. Reply Martin DeVido says: June 12, 2017 at 4:34 pm holy shit paul! your the man! Reply Seth's Project Woodworking says: June 12, 2017 at 4:45 pm Would be super nice to have a lot more videos on layout, and pre planning a project! As these are critical steps to having a successful project. Would love to see how you do it Paul! Maybe even a course how to draw so well! 😉 Reply 1982gdc says: June 12, 2017 at 6:13 pm HIPS – High Impact Polystyrene, you can get it in a range of thicknesses. In the UK, Hindleys.com and www.technologysupplies.co.uk stock it in a range of colours etc. Get the recycled white HIPS its cheaper, and does the job. Been using this technique for years. Reply Paul Sellers says: June 12, 2017 at 6:28 pm I buy sheets from ebay suppliers. The sheets are available large to small and come often in mix and match. Put in styrene plastic and shop around. 2mm is thin and suitable for most, 3-4 for heavier less floppy if needed. Reply level Joe says: June 12, 2017 at 6:38 pm I've used cardboard (non corrugated) for making patterns for working with leather. Reply Mienecus says: June 12, 2017 at 7:06 pm Very usefull👍👍👍 Reply rpnp2 says: June 12, 2017 at 9:52 pm styrene plastic Reply Tayler Made says: June 12, 2017 at 11:20 pm i am going to presume this is cheaper than using 5ml customwood; certainly a lot quicker. you have sold me, great idea. Reply Justin Herrin says: June 13, 2017 at 3:48 am I always enjoy the videos. I'm a huge fan of the instructional videos like the making of the clock and stool. Always such amazing work! Reply skyfooty says: June 13, 2017 at 4:45 am I don't understand the point of this. how do you go from a drawing to a scale template to a full size template. it just looks like you are cutting random shapes. Reply YaoHongWei says: June 13, 2017 at 5:03 am I'm disturbed by the new knife. Reply Jeff Power says: June 13, 2017 at 11:39 am thank you for this Paul. Reply Glenn Felpel says: June 13, 2017 at 8:58 pm Very good information and I see where you said that you purchase the sheet material on Ebay. Thank you for sharing this. Reply Ham68 says: June 14, 2017 at 1:23 am Interesting, I've always used 1/8" to 1/4" thick hard board for my templates, may need to switch now. Thanks 🙂 Cheers. Reply Milofuzz says: June 14, 2017 at 1:45 am What kind of plastic Reply Douglas Lambert says: June 16, 2017 at 4:53 am Would love a video on your drawings. That sketchbook looked very nice…! Reply Richard Garrow says: June 16, 2017 at 4:46 pm As always very informative. Love your videos.. another suggestion on getting some plastic if you have children who attend or did attended school they all had plastic binders nice and flat and come in handy, plus you can have different colors as well. Thanks Paul. Thank you for taking the time and effort to share your knowledge I sure I speak for a lot of folks we all really appreciate it.. Reply deatrixmuntz says: June 16, 2017 at 7:49 pm Good catch 🙂 Reply PAC's Channel says: June 17, 2017 at 1:25 am White on white is no very good for subtitles. Hard to read. Reply Rhodri Jenkins says: June 17, 2017 at 4:46 am What grade of plastic are you using please? Reply Michael Robertson says: July 27, 2017 at 9:10 pm To find the center at two points, consider placing the point of a compass at one corner, draw an arch across the template. Then put the compass point at the opposite corner and draw another arch intersecting the the one drawn previously. Now do the same for the two corners at the other end of the template. You now have two x's that accurately divide the template in half, draw a line through them. Reply David Robot says: August 23, 2017 at 8:12 pm Thanks for the knowledge Paul. Reply Michael Coryell says: September 28, 2017 at 6:41 pm Paul, you need to have a show on public television.This level of skill and expertise combined with the ability to effectively teach it to people who aren't even in the room with you is a rare combination it seems.
