But I have so much scrap maple available, it is easy to make more.

I have made them for drawer front pulls also, it’s faster than measuring and marking.

I mark every door with the small bit before changing to 3/16 bit.
I have also used a vix bit ...self centering...to do the marking, and puts no wear on the jig

For drawer pulls it's very different... I have methods that speed up that process without an actual jig.

I have been in the home construction business for over 45 years.......never....ever been busier. We are selling new houses to first time home buyers at a rate that is hard to fathom. I attribute this to consumer confidence and optimism...but I'm just a simple carpenter.....not an economist.
Unfortunately the construction industry jobs created go mostly to immigrants with questionable legal status.
