may have spent hours making your own pergola.
Don't spoil it with too plain a finish to the rafter tails - the one place that can make a world of difference. "The icing on the cake!"
Your rafter tail template arrives on several pages depending on its size. Print it...
... cut it out and place the parts side by side to get the complete classical shape.
Pergola Rafter Tails Template
Paste the finished shape onto a slightly larger size piece of plywood or card.
Use a jig saw to carefully cut around
Once you have cut out the template...
...transfer this classical shape onto each of your rafters.
This will keep your rafter tails in a neat line.
Now carefully cut along the shape using a jig saw. Don't forget to sandpaper the cut edges. First use a course sandpaper followed by a finer sandpaper for the best effect.
How To Select Your Template.
Suppose you want to select the 4.5" width rafter tail. Click on *Select* against the relevant box A above and scroll down.
You will see three versions. 4.5" 4 1/2" 114mm.
Decimal, fraction and metric versions.
Click on this.
In a moment you will be asked to select again. Use the left hand decimal version - 4.5" - for this.
Now choose your own template.
