I don’t think that you can build an effective jig for cutting an oval on a bandsaw. The oval is a hyperbolic function and would be difficult to develop as a bandsaw jig. Best be satisfied with a cut pattern and follow it for consistency. You can also draw an oval with a loop of string, two nails (for the two center points common to all ovals) and a pencil. Loop the string around the nails and run the pencil around the loop. You will need to play with the string length and nail locations to get the shape you want. Send me a message and I would be happy to provide further assistance.
