Project Information

My version of a pattern follower for my 14" Rikon bandsaw. Instead of just clamping the follower in place, I used the rip guide by laying it on the backside lip of the fence and attaching my follower. It allows minute adjustment to the blade depth from the template, by moving the fence. It makes quick work at the band saw and a perfect transition to the router table. I also have an 1 1/2" follower for the rockers on my Adirondack Rocker and pedestal legs.

Nice jig, nice post. There are a number of ways to make these, but yours appears to be well connected to your fence. That defeats the jig wanting to move as you apply pressure to the form you are following.

Makes the amount to route off a small amount, and what could be better, you're ready to route right off the bandsaw. Just don't take off the form yet.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks Steve….click on my Instagram link and you see me go straight to the router table, then off comes the template at the miter station. This is the back leg patterns for my Arm Chair.

That is brilliant, I've never seen or thought of anything like that. I recently struggled following hand-drawn lines on the bandsaw, because I couldn't think of a way to guide off of a template! I'll do this next time.
