how to make an "actual MDF template"

If you are making drawings with CAD you are well ahead of the game. Get your drawings plotted out, real size, cut them out w/ scissors, then trace onto the template material (MDF). Then cut the template(s) out with great precision and care. Use the template(s) for your routing pleasure. :D

Hey, how was I supposed to know that you didn't want to try to put a plank of MDF through your printer? After all, you did ask what "an MDF" was. haha

If you copy the image to microsoft paint, it will print out many sheets of paper that you can put together to make your template. Just be sure to put a light grey grid behind your plans so you can accurately line up the pages(with a steel rule) before gluing.
