Laser-Cut Acrylic Woodworking Templates for Custom Table Legs

Unleash your creativity or bring precision to your professional woodworking projects with our expertly laser-cut Acrylic Woodworking Templates. Designed for constructing distinct and sturdy wooden table legs, these templates are the cornerstone of custom furniture projects, including dining tables, coffee tables, and benches.

Our comprehensive table leg templates are crafted from 1/4" thick acrylic, serving as an ideal router glide or tracing guide. Their clear structure ensures perfect precision, allowing you to embed detailed elements into your work. Reusable and durable, these templates are an essential part of any woodworking toolkit, regardless of your shop's size.

Each Acrylic Woodworking Template consists of interlocking pieces that utilize our unique dovetail locking system. This system ensures secure and straightforward assembly during routing. The clear acrylic provides perfect placement and alignment, guaranteeing every cut is accurate and each detail is meticulously crafted.

To optimize your woodworking experience, we suggest our Universal Mounting Plates for attaching the table legs and our specially designed Template Tape for securing our clear templates to the wood.

The templates are available in three sizes to suit the table project of your choice:

Dining Table Template:

  • 30" Wide at the top
  • 26" Wide at the bottom
  • 28" Tall
  • Template Sku: 08-007

Coffee Table Template:

  • 18" Wide at the top
  • 16" Wide at the bottom
  • 15" Tall
  • Template Sku: 08-008

Bench Template:

  • 14" Wide at the top
  • 12" Wide at the bottom
  • 17.5" Tall
  • Template Sku: 08-009

Instructions for Use:

  1. Select the Appropriate Template: Choose the template size that matches your woodworking project, be it a dining table, coffee table, or bench.

  2. Attach the Template: Use our recommended Template Tape to firmly attach the clear acrylic template to your wood piece. Make sure the template is securely fixed to avoid any movement during the routing process.

  3. Initial Routing: Using a handheld router, trace the acrylic template to create the primary outline of the table leg. This tracing step is a guide for the subsequent cutting and trimming stages.

  4. Cut Excess Material: After routing, use a band saw or jig saw to remove the bulk of the excess material, leaving about 1/16" to an 1/8" of material. This step facilitates the following trimming process, making it more efficient.

  5. Trim to Perfect Shape: Next, use a router table or a handheld router equipped with a flush trim bit. This setup will remove the remaining excess material, refining the shape of the table leg to perfectly match the template.

  6. Add Finishing Touches: After achieving the final shape of the table leg, sand the piece to smooth any rough edges. Add an edge detail to further enhance the look of your table leg. This could be a 1/4" round over or a 1/8" bevel, depending on your preference.

  7. Attach the Table Leg: With the table leg complete, use our Universal Mounting Plates to securely attach the leg to your table or bench.

  8. Repeat for Remaining Legs: Follow the same steps for each table leg. Ensure consistent application of the process to achieve uniformity in all table legs.

The joy of creating your own furniture is in the opportunity to add a personal touch. Feel free to experiment with different finishes and edge details. Our Acrylic Woodworking Templates are designed to make the process easier, more precise, and enjoyable for you. Embrace the satisfaction of creating your own unique piece of furniture!
