I made an oval cutting jig from some scrap plywood for a table build that will have an oval top and some abstract shelves with scuplted legs.
Here is how I built it if you are interested

Great little gig has many uses. I made one a while ago then made another for my son and gave it as a Christmas gift!
Nice work and nice video!

Outstanding! I’ve wanted to play around with ellipses, but didn’t want to shell out the cash for a commercially made jig, so this may be the ticket!
