Some of you may remember about 4 months ago i posted pics and video of a simple jig designed to make wood bowls on a table saw. That jig was an experiment to see how well it would preform and get a better understanding of the stresses, pressures, and dangers. Much to my surprise the blade deflection and ware turned out to be much less then the standard cove making method on a table saw. The amount of deflection was less then half and the ware was also considerably less as best as i could measure it anyway. As A result of my little experiment I built this following Jig and designed it to be very versatile in use with over 48 indexing points on four different fields. It has the ability cut sets of bowls with perfectly repeatable results. This is still just my proto type. I am planing my next build for an improved version of this jig in just a couple of months.
