Rockler Corner Radius Routing Templates

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)
  • For larger radiuses, we recommend that the bulk of the waste be sawn off before routing.

Great Addition To Shop
I used one of the templets to cut corners on a butcher block cutting board - worked great. The 12 different corner sizes will insure I will never have to make up a corner templet again.

Great tool
I make finger joint boxes. once assembled, I use a slot cutter to prepare the piece for the bottom (of the box). With this tool, I get a perfect rounded edge that snugly fits the bottom of the box into the slots. Thanks Rockler!

Woodpecker offers a similar item that is much, much more expensive and made of anodized aluminum! Of course, I don't expect this plastic version to be as durable as anodized aluminum, but since I'm not a professional woodworker I don't expect to use it enough to wear it out. Time will tell.
Charles D on Feb 10, 2019
create better radius corners instead of drawing, bandsawing, and then sanding
Tom on Feb 10, 2019
I laughed when I saw the video on your site. I have used the same techniques of pennies, paint cans... to try and create corner radius. I am hopeful these templates will resolve my problem.

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.
Allan 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.
John
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.
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.
