Cabinet door template

Does anyone know where I can get some cabinet door templates free on the web? I am looking for the standard Cathedral design with a slight curve to them. I know I could order them for $70 - $80 from MLCS or Sommerfeld Tools but was looking for just templates so I could trace them and cut them myself.
Thanks, Dave

Hi Dave,
MLCS has just the template drawings for $14.95 for the set.

I was hunting for the same thing a couple of months ago. go to a art/hobby store and get a large tablet of graph paper (18"x24") and then you can make full size drawings, and cut your templetes from these. took me 1/2 a day to draw and cut templates. now i have templates for doors from 8" wide to 24" wide in 1/2 inch increments, good luck

Why not just download pictures of a couple of different designs you like and lay them out by hand until you hit the proportions you like? You'll have the pictures to go by to suggest proportions, etc. Use common household items to achieve the curves - anything from common serving plates to coffee cans to a simple compass. It's a matter of striking pleasing proportions, not a matter of hitting some exact layout. Once you get something you like, cut it out of a piece of cardstock if you need, and you'll have a template ready to go. Sure, it takes a little more time than downloading a set of plans, but it's yours in the end - your design, your efforts and your accomplishment. Once you decide on the radius you want you don't even need the template - just layout the tangent points on the stock and you're good to go. Keep a notebook where you record your measurements for a particular design and you can reproduce it anytime, at will.
