I have a project where I need to cut a large number of a complex shape into some papyrus paper (about 100-200 sheets.) The shape is quite intricate, and I'm not sure of the best approach.
I discussed on the woodworking forum (who suggested I migrate to here) that I could use a two duplicate wooden or metal templates, then clamp the papyrus sheets between then and run round the edge with a router. They seemed to think I would not get a good finish. Does anyone have a suggestion how best to do this? Preferably without great expense. The shape is roughly rectangular (with lots of rough bumps and indents around the edge) and about 8.25" x 7".
Each item can have slightly rough edges, and they don't need to all be absolutely identical but reasonably close.
Any help would be much appreciated.
