  • Make an oval table top?

    How do I get the shape for an oval table top. Is there a jig fot it. It is for a coffee table.

    I hope this can help. Make a template of half of your top from a heavy paper or card board of your plan. lay that on your top and mark. turn the half of paper over and line your start to finish ends to the marks on the other side. This should match both sides for the oval you want.

    Be safe out there folks.
