    Hi Brad,When I do a lot of my wood work, I use a standard A4 size printer and print the design out in sections, then sticky tape them back together.I use standard paper you buy in those 500 sheet reams, nothing special about it.The old way I used to do my design was to glue the paper design to the wood, but now I use masking tape to hold the design to the wood, and then slide a piece of carbon paper under it then trace over the design. That works well on light coloured woods, but dark woods I suppose gluing it down is the best option.The down side to gluing the design to the wood is removing the parts of it you don't carve out. I use a wide flat chisel to scrape the remainder off.If you have only 1 paper template, see if you can get it scanned then you can print out again and again with...see more »Hi Brad,When I do a lot of my wood work, I use a standard A4 size printer and print the design out in sections, then sticky tape them back together.I use standard paper you buy in those 500 sheet reams, nothing special about it.The old way I used to do my design was to glue the paper design to the wood, but now I use masking tape to hold the design to the wood, and then slide a piece of carbon paper under it then trace over the design.

I use a wide flat chisel to scrape the remainder off.If you have only 1 paper template, see if you can get it scanned then you can print out again and again without having to worry about ruining the only copy you have.Another method too for the design, is to just get the design printed out somewhere on to one big piece of paper.I did that with a bed head, I went to the office supplies shop and got the design printed onto an A0 sized sheet. That was a big time saver on such a large design....but small designs i just tape the parts together.Good luck with it allAndrew
