A few weeks ago Milescraft asked me to use their Design/Inlay Kit 1207 to create some wood designs and projects. Having never used this tool before this request, I trusted that the kit would be easy to use. Most of the Milescraft products I had used to this point were, and I was not disappointed!
With this template kit I created some really great wood designs! Some were from the manual they sent with the kit, and others were designs I made up on my own.

Also, if you’re in the market for a router, I absolutely recommend mine. For me, it is the perfect size and easy to maneuver as needed. I especially recommend it for women as it’s easier for our sometimes smaller hands to grip. It works really well for all the applications I’ve tried it on, though may not be great for heavy duty work. It comes with an awesome plunge system which is necessary to do these wood designs, and really, I just love it. Here is a link if you want one too.

DIY Engraved Wood Designs using a router:
Alright, so here are more photos of the designs I was able to create by adjusting the template and using the router to create different sizes and patterns.
The template system works similarly to a spirograph type toy. You adjust the template to make part of the design, the twist it to create the next section, and so on. Make sure to check out their website and watch the video on how to use it.

These are so neat!! I’m in the process of building a new coffee table for our homestead, and we already have a router. I am definitely pinning this for later and going to have my Redneck give me a lesson or two so I can learn to use our router. Thanks so much for sharing!
