Building the Jim Chambers Lancaster Flintlock: Brass Patch Box Design

This is the fun part, however, after reviewing hundreds of pictures and needing to stay within the Lancaster genre, I needed to have a scale blank sheet of paper to sketch on.

1st I needed an "edge tracer" so that had to be made.
I went with a 20 degree angle for a standard round pencil.
It is best to use wood so with a grinder you can tune the block into dropping the line straight down.
Make sure to add a grid of known dimension to the paper.
I traced both sides, once with the trigger guard, and once without.
