Default Need to learn about routers.

Newbe here. Have had a router for at least 15 yrs and only tried to use it once. I am a Longarm Quilter and would like to make my own acrylic templates and need advice on how to go about it and where to go for the supplies. TIA. Jinnie41

Welcome to the form, Virginia.

Making templates for wood work is not too hard. What sort of templates do you need for Longarm Quilting?

Sydney, Australia

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.

Welcome aboard.
I make what some call templates quite often, for almost all of my projects in fact, I call them masters myself. Others call them patterns, jigs, or whatever. I make mine from 1/2" plywood, then layer another piece of 1/2" onto that, then rout around them, making my masters 1" thick.
