Templates are the Gold Standard

Templates are the best way to create high quality work. With Plate, you can save yourself the time, expense, and material of creating custom templates for each project. Simply create the file, place Plate and cut. I love it!

My favorite part about Plate? The way that all the Flags click! That sound is perfection! Seriously, though, all those flags make repetitive cuts so easy.

I used Plate on my most recent cutting board to round off all the corners using the Flags. This made the process so much more efficient and saved me a bunch of setup time.

I’m a visual learner, so I need to see a digital version of every project to make sure everything in my head will actually work in the real world. This makes working with the whole Origin System super easy since I am already creating digital files for my work.

One habit that I’ve really benefited from is milling up extra material that matches my workpiece when I start a new project. Especially when using exotic or expensive wood, this can really save you in crunch time if something goes wrong!
