For those of you who use templates to route a neck dovetail joint, do you use uke sized templates (smaller than guitar templates) or do you use guitar templates, but just the 'bottom' portion? If you use smaller templates, where did you get them?

Someone on facebook recently mentioned they use the stew mac dovetail jig for tenors. Yes, just use the end.

I made my own that are smaller than the StewMac ones. It took about two hours to do.

I have the hardboard ones from LMI. They work.
I'm new at this but same template with different bit & collar sizes should allow to adjust the width and angle to meet your needs I would think.
