Router Carving Jig
You can make a variety of beautiful, wooden bowls from the scraps you have laying around using our router carving jig.
This project started with a simple idea — use a router to make a decorative bowl. It’s a great way to get more from your router. Before you can make the bowl, you need a router jig and some templates. By the end, we were wondering what the project really was. Is it the jig and template system, or is it the bowl itself? From the outset, I was worried it would be difficult and expensive to find a large, thick piece of wood for the bowl. As it turns out, this project is a great way to use up small cutoffs you have lying around the shop. I found this out by accident. To try out the jig, I glued up a blank from some poplar scraps. When I was done, the bowl had such a nice form that I painted it. The result speaks for itself.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
