Free Pinewood Derby Car Templates Designs Plans
Free Pinewood Derby Car Templates Designs Plans courtesy of Derby Dust
These unique pinewood plans are not for the faint of heart. They will require scroll saws and a few days planning. They are designed strictly for show and are unique to the market. As such most will require add on of balsa / bass wood to build the core block bigger as most exceed the height and width of the standard block. Once the bigger block is made, then apply the templates and scroll cut away.
We plan on offering 2 types of designs. One set will require slicing the body in sections, cutting those profiles out, then gluing the sections back together to complete the build. Additional tooling such as Derby Worx Pro Body Slotter and Derby Dust’s Axle Drill guide are highly recommended tools for these specific templates.
In addition, other templates are simply profile templates and you can then create your own personal flair for best of show. Use the template as a guide to make your own unique Derby Winner.

What else do I need for my template?
Some of the cars below are very low profile at only ¼″ thick for extreme aerodynamics. Because of this, these cars require ¼″ tungsten cubes for weight. Some of the cars are pictured with custom plastic accessory parts and/or decals. For instance, the weight, custom parts and certain decals are all available on this website.
