Offsetting cut from template is easy.
Use a 3/4” template guide on router with 1/2” spiral bit, instead of flush trim. The final cut will be 1/8” larger/smaller than template OD (depending on outside/inside cut of template). HF sells a cheapo template guide set for $16.
Can use smaller or larger guide for different cut offsets.

Best Luck.
