Belt Slot Template

Belt Slot Template

When you’re laying out your belt slots, you want to make sure you leave plenty of leather around the slot. This template is sized to allow for 1/2″ of leather around the belt slot. One side of the template can be used for a curved edge around your slot, while the other can be used for a parallel line around your slot – your choice! I also like to use the curved edge like a makeshift French Curve.


These templates are laser cut out of 1/8″ durable cast acrylic right here in our workshop in Decatur, TX.


For an example of how I use this template, check out this video (at the 0:45 second mark):
