Foe about a year now people have been asking for my most popular template shape in a larger size that fits my larger charcuterie board form. So here it is! This router template is sized perfectly to fit within the dimensions of my 20.5x12.5x2 reusable resin form.
This is a 0.5 inch Cast Acrylic Master Template for Charcuterie Boards, Cutting Boards, Cheese Boards and Serving Trays.
It measures 12" tall at its longest point, and 20" wide at its widest point and pairs perfectly with my 20.5x12.5x2 Original All-in-One Reusable HDPE Epoxy Resin Form.
This template is designed to be used in conjunction with a flush trim bit and guide bearing on a router table. It can be also be used to trace the shape to be cut on a scroll saw or jigsaw OR with a flush trim bit in a handheld router with a little more preparation.
This template can be attached to a “blank” workpiece using double sided tape and repositioned until you achieve the look you are hoping to create. Whether it be a laminated board blank, a wood and resin board blank, or simply a piece of hardwood.
How to Use This Product:
- Attach template to workpiece with double sided tape, or trace the shape onto your workpiece.
- Trim the excess material around the master template (or drawn shape) as close as you can get without damaging the template.
- Use the router with guide bearing (or chosen tool) to trim the blank to the exact shape of the template.
This allows you to quickly and efficiently repeat this shape as many times as you like.
This template is intended to get you an accurate and repeatable shape quickly and easily every time. It is not intended to produce a finished product. Your general edge shaping (chamfers and round overs) as well as sanding will still be required to achieve a finished work piece.
