« Part 2: Something better to laminate the boards Part 3 of Bandsaw Series series Part 4: Video Deleted »

I’m in the middle of constructing the famous Thien Separator and I needed to build a circle cutting jig to use on my band saw.
I decided to make a video of it (my very first one) to share with you.
You can view it here on YouTube.
Hope you enjoy it.

Paul, this is a pretty informative video. Hard to believe that this is the first time you have produced one since it is well produced. I have been meaning to build a circle cutting jig and your idea looks like it would be a pretty good way to go.
