No more rummaging through a stack of templates for the right size, this package combines the most common grommet sizes into two templates. Each size is clearly labeled for quick identification. Transparent acrylic with fine cross-hairs on each hole makes it easy to align the template with your pencil marks. Use with the 5/8" Short-Shank Guide Bushing, which is specially designed for 1/4" template stock.


The template holes are 1/8'' larger than thee finished size to allow for a guide bushing. The finishes circle sizes are: 3-1/2", 3-1/4", 3-1/8", 3", 2-3/4", 2-1/2", 2-3/8", 2-1/4", 2", 1-15/16", 1-3/4", 1-9/16" and 1-3/8". Finishes oval sizes are: 2-1/2" x 6-1/8" and 2-3/8" x 4-5/8".

These templates can easily be attached to your piece / surface using double-sided tape. For a firm hold you can also countersink some holes and screw the template to the work-piece. This is designed for use with a 5/8'' short-shank guide bushing and a 1/2'' spiral up-cut bit but other bits may be used for alternative results.


The variety of circle / oval sizes makes these templates ideal for grommets, inlays and general tracing for other projects.

Works just as expected. A little pricey but worth it if you have a need.

When that Forstner bit just isn't enough
I have made a number of projects which included large openings such as in boxes where I was using large Forstner bits. They would bog down with my drill press and ended out making a rather ugly hole that needed a lot of sanding to clean up. This will enable me to make much cleaner openings for my projects. It will also be faster.

Nice jig with many sizes.
Works great with a guide bushing (make sure it is a short one). Works ok with a pattern bit as well though your sizes would be bigger.

Rockler Circle template
I found this item to be sturdy and accurate. I am using the template to make accurate simi circles on the ends of portable table legs so they are all the same when the tables are folded for storage

Great Except
Worked Perfectly, but I didn't notice the fine print (well, it was normal print) that said the circles were 1/8" oversized. In the end, I routed a smaller circular "shelf" and turned the mating part down 1/8" D.

Love it
Found this based on the wood whisperers Salt Cellar video. Have used these to make Christmas gifts for the last 2 years. My only grip is that labels for the size of the circle have worn off with lots of use.

need some bigger holes
It worked as advertised, but I used it to make a bowl effect. They should make additional template with bigger options, which I would have used.

Worked perfect for circles and a router. I wish that the company would come out with a series of ovals. I had a project that needed a 1/2" oval. Cutting it out with a jig saw/ scroll saw was almost impossible.

I need to make recessed holes frequently and my biggest forstner bit is 2 in. If i set this to only go through about 1/4 inch, it should be fine, right? and I could clean up the rest of the hole with the same bit?
christy h on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these templates and the included bushing would work well for this purpose.
