Is the template for the dipping bowl under the jig? I thought you started out freehand!!

That is a neat way to make the recess..kind of like a pin router that does it from the other side on a router table.
That TWC is truly an amazing machine!..You had no sawdust to sweep up either!!
Nice job and good video!!............Jim

That’s quite a machine you’ve got there!

I was trying to tell how you knew where to line it up… just before cutting…?

Nice illustration of the TWC making a critical job look easy, and now you are into assembly line mode. I assume you have an area where you store jigs. I usually write instructions for routines like that are going to be repeated, knowing that when I want to make another batch, I will have forgotten some detail or another. I haven’t done that with woodworking yet, but with other hobbies I have.

A pattern out hard board could have been stuck into place & a router & pattern bit used in the conventional way to do the same thing. Yes?

Hello Larry, I very much like the more finished sushi boards on your website, i.e. with the handles attached. The angled recess for the bowl is nice touch also.

One thing for sure your dust collector system is awsome.
