Finally! A way to create incredible letter wood or resin inlays in two different sizes. Each letter template includes a 5" tall large letter and 3" tall small letter. Letters Q and J are extended height due to the font used.

Create monogrammed / initialed serving boards, signs, or other pieces of wood and resin art including letters. The font was chosen to be a timeless design and modified to accommodate 1/4" router bits to ensure compatibility.

The small (3" tall) letters should be used for pocketing and backfilled with resin only as there is not an inlay bit and bushing set that will fit inside to create male/female pairs. There is generally no issue using the 5" letters for wood inlays (with an inlay routing kit) or simple pocketing.

The template includes both the male and female part of the template, to give you ultimate "making" flexibility. 

All letter templates are sold separately, so to choose the letter you wish to purchase use the drop down menu above to select the letter, then click on add to cart. You can purchase the entire alphabet by selecting the "Entire Alphabet" drop down option. This also includes the & symbol.

Crafted Elements Acrylic Router Templates

The Crafted Elements line of laser cut acrylic router templates are precision cut templates designed especially for woodworkers. Unless you have access to a CNC machine in your shop these templates are the easiest, most accurate and most repeatable way to shape wood and wood+resin pieces into things like charcuterie boards, serving trays, handles, functional art and more.

Like our line of maker molds, we designed these templates to save you time and boost production efficiency. These take the guesswork out of shaping and fabricating. By simply pulling one of these clear templates off the shelf and lining it up on your material you’ll instantly know how your final piece will look before you even start cutting and shaping.

We laser cut all of our templates out of long lasting and durable 1/4” thick cast acrylic to ensure the bearing on your router bit has enough surface area to glide on. These templates can be used over and over and will quickly become a go-to tool in your shop.

Reduce errors, inaccuracy and problems with making complex shapes perfectly symmetrical. We even have templates to match many of our awkwardly shaped silicone molds, so you can cut and shape pieces of wood to fit perfectly snug within our molds before you pour your resin.

All you need is a template, flush trim router bit (like this one) and a router table. Even the most basic routers are capable of shaping materials up to 1.5” thick.

Using our templates is easy:

  1. Place the template over your material (usually wood or wood & epoxy resin). Trace the shape of the template onto your piece.
  2. Using a jig saw, scroll saw or a band saw (where appropriate) cut out the rough shape you traced onto your material, leaving between 1/16” and ¼” outside of the perimeter.
  3. Affix the template to your material using two sided tape or hot glue.
  4. Install your appropriately sized flush trim bit into the router in your router table such as the Crafted Elements 1/4" High Performance Spiral Down Cut Flush Trim Bit. Be sure your router bit has a blade long enough for the height of your material. Line up the bearing of your router bit with the acrylic template.
  5. Turn on your router and glide the template along the bearing of your router bit, allowing the router to remove the excess material on your piece, effectively duplicating the shape of the router template.
  6. Carefully remove the template from your material. Remove the two sided tape or hot glue. Sand any leftover residue off of your project. You can use goo-gone or other adhesive remover on the acrylic templates for any stubborn or sticky residue.
