My wife has been wanting me to make a lazy susan for her mother’s dinner table. I wasn’t able to find a good way to cut out a clean circle until I found the video to make this jig on the American Woodworker YouTube channel located here:

I was amazed by its simplicity and his simple directions on how to make it. I wanted to share this with fellow Lumber Jocks in hopes that it may help them too. I’m posting several pictures of my jig and my Craftsman Bandsaw that I got recently on Craigslist. I REALLY love this saw. You’ll be able to see a picture of a finished circle that I cut with it. Thank you for viewing.

And just when I am getting ready to make a couple lazy susan’s. I was going to make a jig using a jig saw but would much rather use the band saw. Thanks for sharing the link
