Topic tags/keywords: jig tablesaw turning

Has anyone making a bowl with a tablesaw? I just found this video and thought it was very interesting. I would like to try this and wonder if anyone has any advice. Thanks

I would be afraid to do this… I have a lathe though, and enjoy turning… The tablesaw would severely limit any design.

I’ve cut round discs on a table saw, and was a bit nervous doing it. It works but there is a better way. It was an interesting video, looks like a lot of work for a rather limited design. I use my lathe for stuff like this but I did get some ideas on doing some inlay work on bowls using some of his methods. Thanks for posting!

I really like this. its really no different than cutting Cove cuts on your table saw. As long as you go slowly and dont raise the blade up too high at one time, I dont really see a problem with it!

Very cool – thanks for sharing!

I could see doing an external design using this technique because you could get a look that you cannot get with a lathe. Otherwise, I will stick to my lathe.
