Router Carving Jig

Make beautiful bowls with 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.
