I don’t have the jig any longer so I can’t give precise measurements. I’m going to guess that it was about 2’ square. The usual size board I put in was 11” to 13” high and 23”+ wide. Spacing boards and a couple of wedges hold the plaque in place while working.
I made the jig to fit the mahogany faced MDF I acquired from a dumpster dive. The wood for my younger boys group was store bought. I figured where I wanted the router to cut and then drilled holes for the dowels to fit. Some cuts would go on the left side of the guide and the rest on the right. For each vertical cut the cut strip would be moved to the matching numbered holes on the top and bottom of the jig. I started the cut for the bottom radius by placing the router at the starting corner of the radius moving to the opposite corner.
After 6 years of use I pasted it on to a friend for his group.
I didn’t like the kits that were at the scout store, so there you go.
