Ellipse maker made of scraps: playwood, mahogany, hard plastic and some screws, washers and nuts – cost almoust nothing.
It’s capable of making circles/ellipse from 40-160 cm in diameter. I drilled holes every 2cm and at one end, there is a fine tunning with two wing-nuts, so every milimeter is covered. For bottom side of jig, I used 4mm thin plastic material, so I can either screw it or glue with double tape to cutting material.
There are two holes for bigger and smaller router set-up.
For smaller circles I made MDF bandsaw circle jig, capable of making 2,5 – 100cm in diameter.

There is also link to You Tube video of how this bandsaw circle making jig works :

Nicely made Ivan. I have been meaning to make an elliptical jig like this for years but I never seem to get around to it.
