When you're fitting a customer, they never know what feels right until you gone to far. You get beyond their comfort level and you need to add back more wood. From a blank, that's hard to do. With a pattern you simply add back some bondo. Plus when it comes to the artistry of the outside shape of the stock, a pattern lets you complete your thoughts and add details that you find fitting. Sometimes those details need to be a little deeper to allow the stylist of the duplicator gets a good contact point.
Bondo is the pattern makers friend.
Looking forward to the Stock Making Book!
Having the correct tracer and cutter is a plus.
