« Part 1: Push Block/Hand Plane/Saw - Handles Part 2 of Templates series Part 3: Bandsaw Boxes! »

I wasn’t planning on making a series out of my last template blog, but I had a request from a fellow lumberjock to make him an Oval Fan Inlay template. So figured I’d have a whole series of templates.

I will treat this series like folders in a computer – when/if I have more ideas, or more requests for templates, I’ll add it to the blog it belongs to. (i.e. I’ll put any other push-block-design templates in the 1st blog of the series titled Push Block/Hand Plane/Saw – Handles)

(So of course) Any inlay templates would be added to this blog of the series. I will also create more blogs in the series as needed or requested to fulfill the template type (“folder”).

So if you are following the blog, you may want to check back in from time to time to see if any others have been added. From here on out, I will try and draw things to scale (if requested) – i will also keep any file (from google sketchup) I create so if you need the file (to print to scale) I can email it to you.

I think this could be a great resource for woodworkers. Feel free to contact me with any templates you have that I could add to the blog, or just post the picture in the comments section.

If you’d like me to draw you a template just let me know, and I’ll see if I’m able to for you…...


First inlay is a 2”X3” oval fan inlay. Not sure if everyone is capable of printing to scale so I drew on a scale (each block represents 1 square inch)
