OK, way cool, no doubt. What’s next?, bowling pins on a table saw? Think about it!

Outta sight, Izzy. I knew you could do it. You need some video of it at the local bowling alley!! 12# is legal! Is it the proper diameter for the ball return to handle it?

Fish scale says 13 pounds but I dont know how accurate it is and I broke the bathroom scale last time I used it.. it just screamed one at a time please! Then gave up the ghost.. but I made it 8 1/2 inches in diameter which is what the internet said it was suposed to be.. I hope thats right.. cause it might get messy when I take it to the bowling alley.. lol

Wow, I would not believe it could be done til I saw your video. Unreal. Only on lumberjocks, where everyone takes woodworking to the next level….and then some!

That is a first. What a great jig. Now I’m thinking I need to make a wooden ball. Very creative. LumberJocks should have an award for the most creative and unique jig and/or project. Thanks for sharing. Do you think you could make a solid oval?

Oval would be no trouble at all.. just have to use an elliptical shaped tunnion for a base. instead of a centered pivot point.. that’s a cool idea!

And I thought raised panels on the tablesaw were cool! You are definitely a “creative thinker”! Can’t wait to see yer next innovation.
