    Router Table

    I just started doing bracing cutouts today with a router and flush trim bit with scraps clamped to the underside of the board as a guide. This has worked suprisingly better than I thought it would but I still had a few ****ups where the clamped pieces shifted.

    I imagine this process would be much simpler/quicker with a precut template piece and a router table. I was curious though as to how one attaches the template to the workpiece? I don't really want to marr the piece with screws, and have never used a router table, but they seem relatively cheap.

    Anybody? I know I've seen shops that use this method.

    You can use brad nails, but you end up putting a lot of holes in the template. Double stick tape works great. You shouldn't be putting much pressure at all on the template.
