14pc. set of F-hole Stencil Cutouts - use as decorative elements or positive stencils
This is a set of 14 stencils/templates of 3 different F-hole patterns, based on designs that have been used on stringed musical instruments (lutes, violins and more) throughout history. These are laser-cut from 0.080" clear acrylic, and come with protective film in place which you can peel off. You can use them as-is as decorative elements, or use them as "positive" stencil templates - just put them where you want the F-hole marking, draw around the edge, and then cut/route out the shape. These are the cut-out pieces from our 9-piece set of "negative" (trace the inside, not the outside) F-hole templates, presented here by popular demand.
The designs included in this set are:
- Traditional-style elegant F-hole (3 sizes: 2.5", 3.5" and 4.5")
- Renaissance-style F-hole (sometimes called a "C-hole" because it looks more like a C than an F) - 3 sizes: 2.5", 3.5" and 4.5"
- Heart - a fanciful pseudo-F-hole design that incorporates a heart shape (1-size: 3.5")
The "Stradivarius" design is not included in this set, as the cut-out pieces are too thin at the upper and lower points and break far too easily.
Acrylic this thin is rather brittle, so treat these templates gently and don't bend them, otherwise they might break!
