Topic tags/keywords: jig trick tip tablesaw turning

A friend of me saw i was using my tablesaw for turning and asked me to show the idea.
It is very simple and realy fast. I cut the total Deep in one row.
It is just a jig there can rotate the Wood whyle cutting it on the tablesaw.
It is mounted on the sliding parts of my tablesaw.

I know it is also possible to do on a planer.

Ready to start directly from a Square piece of lumber:

After cutting it. I have heard that it help on the grooves if i have “round teeths” on my sawblade. I have not tryed it because it is realy fast to sand away in that jig:

After sanding and ready to make some “limbs on a pubbet” in a size you cannot by (in denmark)

I have never seen that before. Suggestion- you might consider buying a good dust collector.

There are several videos and how to’s out there showing various ways to turn on the table saw… a quick google will turn up quite a few. There are also a few that are pretty wild, and not something I would want to attempt… like this one by Izzy making a bowling ball on a table saw :)

You can find his project page about it here:
