I use double sided carpet tape from Lowes. Use it sparingly or you'll be prying the pieces apart with a chisel and damage the work piece. (DAMHIK)

I would not trust that light weight foam double sided stuff. I use hot glue but not often. It sets up so fast and if you accidently blob too much on I've created gaps that cause issues for me. The tape is just easier in my opinion.

I've not had any issues with residue, but a little denatured alcohol will take that tape residue off. But literally, a couple 2 by 1 inch rectangles strategically placed will be enough with carpet tape.

Another fan of double sided carpet tape. not sure where I got mine but it is really thin and about 2 inches wide. works great. Actually I need to get another roll mine is getting low. Think I bought it at true value.

Just one more comment. Home Depot carries a brand of carpet tape. "Rhino" I think is the brand name but stay away from that stuff. You will have residue issues you wont believe. It's mostly glue with kind of a nylon webbing, works great for carpet but anything you may want to seperate later .............

I've been using it for five years with no issues whatsoever. As I said in a previous post I have to separate the template from the workpiece with a putty knife.

You really should try it.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.
