I was wondering if anyone has any photos of their jig for cutting compound staves. I have included a couple photos of what I am trying to do. After making these with some crude cutting jigs on my tablesaw I was unhappy with the sfety factor. Being the piece are small 3inches in length and narrow there was no place for hold down clamps. Any help would be appreciated.

No unfortunately I need the center to be solid as possible. These will be threaded eventually.

you have 8 staves. the angle on the sides of the staves should be 22.5 degrees. could you cut them with a 22.5 degree camfor bit in a router table. i make 8 sided items and that is how i cut them.
