I might be missing something, but all I see are three routers sitting on a bench.

Hi Stan - yeah, looks pretty good. Just how were you planning on using it, copy it with a flush trim bit? If so, be aware all your inside corners will be rounded which may be problematic, especially for the that feature in the middle top.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

I used a porter cable 1/4 template guide with a spiral cutter to cut them out and they with make sharp corners fine. I think im going to make some more diffternt styles and
put them on ebay and see if anyone bites. if I make $20.00 off one it would be a great day! :-)
Thanks guys
