Figure 7
Select stave 6 feet long by 1 1/8 inches square. First, mark off dead center, A. Then from end to end draw a line through middle, B. One inch from center line, A, draw line across back at C. Three inches from A, draw another line across stave at D. This gives 4-inch area for handle, C upper, D lower. From C, draw two lines to end of arm E and F, each 5/16 inch from center line, B, and 5/8 inch from one to the other. Repeat from D to other end, and trim off bye-wood. Then from C at belly of stave, draw line on side of stave to G, 5/8 inch from back. Repeat from D to other end, and trim off bye-wood.
