Just picked up my new bowtie template

I tend to use a template for my bowties instead of hand cutting/fitting them. Sure, I could go about making my own templates from plywood but I was worried about protecting the ration in each step down.

So, I had a friend of mine who does cnc stuff make me this template.

I have a few others but they are all pretty cartoony looking - I wanted something nicer with a large tie at 7" wide for some larger pieces.

So here's the template... I'll have examples of the end product to show tomorrow.

That looks good to me. Nice crisp corners as well.

I would be interested in purchasing one of these. I would also like to have matching templates for the bowtie pieces so I could cut them out using my router.

The bowtie pieces would be cut from this same template. the cut for the recess is with the guide bushing on and the inlay is cut with the bushing off. So it's a two-in-one.

My friend is pricing up how much he could make them for in small runs. So, pricing, I have no idea about until then but there are other people who want them too.

Yep, I know. But, the ratio is strange. They are to steep from the ends to the middle. I wanted a template that had less of a taper and a more elongated look to it. Something more elegant looking and I think it worked.

Even if he kept the prices comparable to woodcraft I'd be interested in one of those.
It looks better than woodcraft ones. Tell your buddy to make more and ill buy one.

Depending on price, I'd be up for one too.

I should have pricing in a few days. I don't think I'll be able to provide the template guide and bushing sets tho. It would be just for the template.

Could someone please lay that plane on its side? :)

Nice ties!

Friends don't let friends use stamped metal tools sold at clothing stores.

Here's a comparison between a commercially available template and mine.

First photo is the commercial one (I forget who made it), second photo is from my template - both are from benches I've made and am making:

+1 on those being much more attractive proportion. Am I understanding this correctly that the inlay is cut from the size up from the one used for the hole? What bushing/bit combo is this optimized for? You've sparked my interest!

Nope, from the same hole.

Bushing on is for the recess, bushing off is for the bowtie inlay - cut from one hole.

my friend just got pricing for me... he would need to charge me $27.50 each. I wanted to charge $32.50 for them with shipping included so it doesn't work out.

would like to find a cnc shop who can make these for me within my cost structure.
