I have a project on the go, and am hoping one of the experts here can offer a suggestion. I have a number of dowels that I need to cut a series of grooves in. The dowels are 14” long, and need to have a series of coves cut to give a washboard effect each cove needs to be about 2-3mm wide, spaced 2-3mm apart. I could mark it out, and cut each one individually, but in the interest of time (I have a batch of 30 dowels that have to be shaped identically) I would like to make some sort of jig that will allow me to do turn all coves at once.
My first attempt was to make something with wires, to burn the coves, but with the gauge of wire need, spacing equally proved to be next to impossible.
Any suggestions on a jig that will make quick work of this project?
