Create perfect 18" circles using your router table and a flush trim bit with the help of our circle templates. This template also includes 0.5" wide, 1.75" long clock dial markers at 1,2,4,5,7,8,10,11 and 0.5" wide, 2.5" long clock dial markers at 3,6,9,12 to help you create 18" round clocks.
You can use a 1/8" or 1/4" inlay router bit, this template and a handheld router to create accurately positioned dial markers in your piece with ease. Once your dial markers are routered out of your piece, you can back fill them with resin or insert raised markers in the recessed areas to finish your clock.
The updated version of this template (released Sept. 16th 2022) also features a 2.25" square in the center with 1/4" radiused corners that you can use on the back of the clock to create a pocket to recess a standard clock mechanism in.
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:
