I was JUST about to head out to the shop t cut some circles with a similar jig on my band saw. My table saw blade won’t have any run though. Brilliant.

That is so cool! I am thinking of making a circle cutting jig for my band saw, it would make things a lot easier.

But how did he cut the initial “rough” circle?

I’ve done this when making about 35 restaurant tables years ago just starting with square blanks and raising the blade to start and then rotate. That was for 42” circles. this may not work for tighter diameters. It was quick but made a sawdust storm from hell even with dust collection hooked up to the saw. I now have a SharkGuard which would solve the storm problem now.

Here is a link I’d like to share that discusses using a table saw to create circles. I hope it is helpful.

Thank you all!
First saw off a jigsaw, but I think you can also use this device to do it on the band saw ..
Also thanks for the link. but a very different principle. In my case, do not raise and lower the blade every time.

Have your say...
