Cut down your 1x4, 1x6, and 1x8 boards using the Lumber & Sheet Cut Layout Guide in the plans.
Print out the three Jack-O-Lantern face templates. Make sure you follow the print scaling instructions in the project plans so the templates are the right size for each lantern.
Trace the templates on the 1x6 face panel for each lantern. We placed the template on the board and used a carpenter’s pencil to trace the outline, leaving an imprint in the wood. You can also cut out the face with scissors and trace around it, or use a sharp object to poke holes around the outline and connect the dots.
