After noon all. I’m making a pair of end tables for the living room. These tables will have round tops. I was going to make a circle jig for my router, but I saw an excellent video on You Tube where the guy made a simple jig and used his table saw. When I cut the top out I used a full kerf blade to reduce any blade flexing. All said and done. It worked really well. Now on with the scraping.

Howdy Mark,

Yep, I’ve done it for quite a while now…and it works quite nicely as you say. it all depends upon the material, project parameters and/or final result I’m looking for whether I use a router jig or just the table saw…generally the saw comes into play when I’m feelin’ a tad lazy ; – )

What I DO do though is cut the material down a little closer to final size by quickly pushing the square piece through the same tablesaw using a 45 degree jig, then quickly change jigs.
