I have two options for template material; Both are CNC cut so they are accurate and precise.
The tall option is 2-1/2″ taller than the short model. At 5′-10″ a friend of mine feels very comfortable in the shorter version. However, my dad stands 6’1′ and felt it was a bit on the short side for him.
The first option is a sturdy MDF set of templates which comes at a slightly higher price and slightly higher shipping cost. However, these are ready to go templates you can set on your board and use a router with a flush trim bit, to copy.
The second option is a plastic set of templates which is much cheaper to ship since it’s a lightweight plastic called polystyrene. With these you would set the templates on your board, trace the shape, then cut out using a bandsaw or jigsaw. You could make the templates on any material of your choice.
The plan bundle includes the physical template materials as well as a set of detailed assembly plans. Note: the plans are a digital download that is sent via email upon purchase.

Note: for shipping to CANADA, only the plastic templates are available
