I’m currently working on a project that calls for some small ebony handles to be made. I’m attempting to come up with the safest & easiest jig to make the 1/4” cove profiles on the router table.
Here’s what I have so far…basically a 1” MDF sandwich made of 2 – 1/2” sheets screwed together with 3/4” #8 woodscrews along with 2 ‘mortises’ to receive the handle blanks. Would use a sacraficial fence on the router table and use my rubber push block to run the jig through the cut.
Would like your opinion on if this is the safest way to route the profiles, or if there’s an easier way of getting the profiles routed without sacraficing safety.
Would also like your opinion if you think I’m 100% off my rocker :)
