    Working on scratch-built Vic Smeed design Vivacity from plans
    All wood planks cut from white cedar on the table saw.

    Need to find a neater way of cutting out the windows. On the sides.
    I used a drill on the corners then went in with a Dremel tool cutting wheel. Still working on cleaning up the edges with a sanding stick.

    Any suggestions on the best was to get accurate window outlines?

    All a question of the right saw blade in a clamping type handle, if stuck there is always the option of making something to suit, as per grinding down a hack-saw blade tapered to a point, and a couple of inches long, will suffice rather nicely. Of course, there is always the internet option of finding the right tool for the job at hand. Regards, Gary.

    Thanks for the tip. I have an old scroll saw. Unfortunately, the proper blades for it are rather scarce!

    I use a scroll saw but failing that you could use a coping saw and then sand to the lines. Using a cutting wheel is a bit awkward, especially with small windows and curves.
