In my most resent project ,6 mission dinning room chairs I had a request for information regarding a chair seat scooping Jig that I used to scoop out the seats. Remarkable as it seems this jig is used on the table saw and does a good job once you get the hang of it.The video I found on youtube ” Carve a Chair Seat on the Table Saw with Mario Rodgriguez ” gives a very good idea how it works , in the video Mario states that after using the jig to scoop out the seat it only takes 10-15 minuets to clean in up to the finished product , unlike in the video I found it took much longer to clean up each seat. I found the design to be good but the shuttle has the challenge of making the handles strong enough to take the pressure applied in the process (note quick repair).
