Looking for template

Anyone know where I can get this made? I need it perfectly the same on both sides. I can get close, but not close enough for my liking.

Why not rough cut another one with a jig saw or band saw and clamp or screw the pattern to the board and use a router with a flush trim bit and route it. It should come out exact.

That's how I got this one. I can't seem to get it exact. I am making tongue & groove wainscoting and I need it better then I can get it. The original was a mirror but you can use it only once to run a bit / bearing. After that it just cracks and breaks. So I'm looking for a place or someone that can get it exact.

If the router doesn't do it for you I would take my time and cut the template close to the line with a bandsaw and sand it to the line with a spindle sander. From there you should be able to use a router to make more of them. If the parts are solid wood you will need a really sharp router bit and go real slow when going against the grain. Other than that about all you could do is find a custom millwork shop to make it for you.

The advice you've gotten thus far is solid. I'll also throw out that if you're not able to do it, find someone with a CNC. They can make that cut out as exact as you want it.

Something wrong if using a bearing and cracking....sounds as your bearing is froze/not rolling.

You need a cnc machine to create a pattern the easiest and exactly......You can not mirror and cut precise to fit.....the width of your bit will make it incorrect BUT you could basically draw a single line design as you desire down the center. BUT the pattern must be made the width of your bit plus the one bearing edge on each side of line....it would be a internal cut though..... for an external cut the width of the bearing/guide would need to be removed.

I feel I'm leaving something out but this is the basic for a matching usable pattern....same line could be carbon traced to each side then add or remove the desired waste.

You could just use a circle jig. I count 12 individual centers to accomplish that.

Regards,
Steve

Ok, maybe I didn't make myself clear and that is always a good possibility. lol I had a mirror that was shaped like this. I copied the pattern and then band sawed it out and then used the mirror as the template. The bearing was/is just fine. It's the mirror that doesn't stand up to the tool. Anyway, I have sanded, cut, did all I can do to make it come out the same on both sides. I'm not that good at freehand. So yes, I do need someone that can do it that can make it exact on both sides. A cnc would be just great if I knew someone that had one. That's why I asked in here. I thought someone would know where I can get this made for me. As you can see, all I would need is to have someone cut one edge exactly the same as the other one so they fit together just perfectly. I know of no not local that I can get to cut it for me.

So thanks anyway. I appreciate all the help you have offered.

Well thank you for all the comments. I've looked into it the best I can and it seems that just to make this one template it is over $200.00. So I guess I'll find something else to put on the walls. lol

just to be clear ...

Do you want an exact duplicate of the "mirror" shape you posted in the photo?

Or, do you want a perfectly drawn, balanced symmetrical edge on both sides, not necessarily an exact copy of the mirror's edges.

If you were to make a layout using a draftman's compass and balanced centerlines and raduis lines would that work?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specfic. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo

I want it to match on both sides. Since I'm making the panels tongue and groove, it has to match. I might have a way of doing it that was suggested. I'll try it and hopefully it will all come out good.
