Once Lavender's concept was finalized in Solidworks, he printed a life-size template on paper. The idea here was to test-fit the design on the block using paper, rather than wasting time and material trying to get it right with metal. Here, Lavender cuts out the line drawing template with a razor blade. Once cut, Lavender held the paper up to the block to ensure a proper fit. The design worked perfectly.
