Cutting a smooth radius to soften a 90° corner is fast and flawless with our Corner Radius Routing Templates. The templates can be used alone to draft a simple pencil line, or, better yet, you can click them onto the included handle and rout the radius on your router table with no need for pencil lines at all. The bottom of each template has grippy rubber strips, which, combined with the handle, provide a solid grip that firmly straddles the corner of your workpiece. You get a wide range of a dozen total radiuses: 1/8'' through 1'' radiuses, in 1/8'' increments, and 1-1/4'' through 2'' radiuses, in 1/4'' increments. They're the perfect solution for any project with quarter-round corners, such as the armrests on Adirondack chairs, bookcase end panels, table tops, wall-mounted shelves and more.


Features:

  • Templates click easily in and out of the included handle
  • Rubber strips help grip the workpiece
  • Radius is printed on each rounded corner for easy selection
  • ''Feed Direction'' and ''Hold Here'' are molded into the handle for ease of use
  • Designed for use with a router table and a flush trim bit with a tip-mounted bearing (sold separately)

Practice Practice Practice
These worked very well using a Whiteside spiral combination router bit. Feeding 5/4 red oak end grain in was a bit unnerving at first. Learning to hold the fixture properly for correct lineup on both sides of the radius takes a little practice. My project had 16 1” radiuses (radii for the grammar police), by the end I was confident and had no mishaps with tear outs. These will get lots of future work in my projects.

Corner radius template
Ideal for marking out corner curves.
For cutting the curves it is best to rough cut with a bandsaw or jigsaw first the finishing at the router table.
The hand hold could be better. I found it difficult to hold the template in place when attempting to rout without first rough cutting the curve even at radius as small as 1/2 in.

Only used it once
I've only used this jig once for a 1-1/2" radius on four corners of a board. It worked as expected. The only improvement would be to make the guide from thicker material. There isn't much room for error when setting the bit height so the bearing rides on the guide and the cutting edge is just above the material.

What is the minimum thickness of wood this can be used with before the tabs contact the router table?
Greg on Aug 11, 2016
What is the minimum width of board to allow the jig to register on both sides?
shanian on Apr 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When you say "register" on both sides I assume you mean that you are able to make the router pass without moving the jig. If my assumption is correct, then this is not possible. Each corner of the jig is a different size and I'm not sure why you would want to do this even if you wanted the different radius on each corner as you would be putting your hand awful close to the bit and in an easy spot to slide into the bit.
What is the minimum size of wood required for this jig to work? I'm looking at rounding all 4 corners on 2"X4" pieces of 3/4" wood.
Crazy Al on May 4, 2018
Can this be used with a hand held router? I'll be rounding the corners of a 72" X 36" plywood sheet for a desk build.
Joseph T on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Joseph,
First, I have never tried using these templates with a hand held router. I don’t think it would be safe. The template is too small to balance a router on, and the “handle” will get in the way of the router.
The only ways I can see to accomplish this safely is to attach the template (without the handle) to the bottom of your work with double-sided tape, and then use a router bit with a bottom bearing to follow the template.
Another way to do it would be to use the template to round the corner of a smaller piece of wood, and use that as the template to round the corners of your desktop.

Is this template compatible with handheld routers?
Roy T on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I have only used it on my router table. Since you need the bearing on the router bit to contact the jig surface you could turn your router up side down and clamp it to a work bench and then use the jig. I hope this helps.
I have just received this template and have tried to use it the first time, thankfully on scrap wood. All 2 tabs and 2 posts will not make contact with the work piece, one post is always slightly away from the work causing the template to rock as I try to route the corner. The handle is installed correctly and the corner I'm trying to route is square. It appears that one of the posts is out of aligned. Is the template I received defective?
Larry M on May 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The first thing to check is that the work piece corner is a true 90Deg. with a square if you have one. Then check the template with a square. If the problem still persists, feel free to return the item either online or to your local store even if it was purchased online. We want you to be 100% pleased with your product and will either give you a refund in the manner of your original payment or a replacement product.
Can these corner templates be used to make a half circle, in other words can I use the 2" radius on both corners of a 4" wide board?
Tbird on Feb 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. Not with the handle attached. The locating tab on one side will have nothing to ride against on the second cut.
However, you can remove the handle, turn the template upside down (the bottom has some rubber strips) and use double sided tape to hold it for the second cut. I would only do this on a router table, not with a hand-held router.
