I need to make a template. The size of the template is 23” x 50”. I have plenty of 3/4 mdf but no 1/2”. Since it’s 3/4” and I’ll be flush trimming 3/4” ply it’s going to be a monster to move around(I have to move it from one station to another for multiple processes).
I really don’t want to spend any money on 1/2” so I’m wondering how much material can I remove from the mdf template to lighten it before I run the risk of it breaking apart easily?
Here’s a pic of the template idea. The outside edges are suppose to be scalloped but it’s too much editing so I just left it straight.
