Band Saw Template Jig
Cutting multiple, identically shaped parts has never been easier. This simple jig is the key.
Whenever you have a project that calls for identically shaped contoured parts, a template and this template jig can quickly rough out multiple parts on the band saw. And after the parts are cut, you can clean up the cut using a flush trim bit in your router table. The trick is to use a jig to help guide the workpieces through the blade. The simple jig you see here does the job. It works because the blade is nestled between two contact points on the curved guide. These points guide the template (and workpieces) as you cut.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
