  1. Thanks Paul. Great post. Can I ask where you source the plastic sheet from and what its called? Thanks

    1. Just go to ebay and put in styrene plastic. 2-3mm works fine. Thinner is easier to cut but none of it is hard. I cut 6mm today just fine.

  2. Thank you for a great idea, Mr. Sellers! I have always used card stock, which has always been flimsy and not nearly as useful as the method you have shown.

    Great post. It’s good to see the link between your drawings, your templates and the final work.

    For smaller pieces like boxes, I often use Tetrapaks, cut and flattened out, to make templates. Any left over bits make good glue spreaders!

  4. I am in US. I found this product: High Impact Polystryrene. Thicknesses from .020″ (.5mm) up to .060 (1.5mm). I believe this is the product I will give it a try. I found it on Amazon. Thank you Mr. Sellers for making us aware of this it will be of great use to me.
