A simple template to create useful pieces of functional art. Create a freestanding vinyl record collection holder that can accommodate up to 50 vinyl records. Use 1" thick or larger wood stock to create two free-standing sides of the storage stand. This template has five 0.52" diameter holes to allow you to create recessed pockets in sides of your storage stand, so you can use a standard 1/2" wood dowel or 1/2" aluminum tubing to create a solid attached structure. Though we provide five different mounting points for dowels or tubing it's structural overkill to utilize all five. We recommend using the top two OR the bottom three, depending on how you want the stand to look when complete.

This SKU is for a single template only. If you want to create two sides at the same time without having to detach and reattach the template we recommend purchasing quantity 2 of this template.

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.
