we have been experimenting with different methods of matching our maple edge to our laminated tables. reverse templates seem to be the best choice but we feel were doing too much work! templates for templates!!! how do you guys think we could cut down our time on matching our inside edge to the existing surface. we have band sawed and sanded to the line by hand, but we think we could be a little more accurate.

In some way try to find a router bit with a bearing, the bearing will “read” the maple edge and the cutter will “write” in a piece of MDF…after that, the shape obtained on the mdf board can be cleaned and used.
