no previous part Part 1 of Circle cutting series Part 2: About to start »

This will definitely be a work in progress and will take a while so bear with me.

This is all very alien to me.

In this blog? I will endeavour to show some jigs I have built to cut and sand perfect circles.

Tool of Choice Is the Bandsaw. While circles can be cut with a router and trammel I find the bandsaw is far quicker. the Jig Is basically an extention table with a sliding dovetail dohicky for adjusting the different radii for larger or smaller circles. I will be making some Lazy Larrys…similar to Susans but made by me…Larry. When I have edge glued some boards into the size required I will set up the cutting jig and hopefully attach some big pics for you all to see. Unfortunately not really ready right now so will have to wait.

Blogs like this which detail a particular construction technique or jig development are always well received. I am looking forward to seeing some more info on this.

By the way becoming comfortable with posting here is a lot like hand cutting dovetails- practice, practice, practice. You are off to a good start!!
