I ran across this jig made a woodnet forum user many years ago. Maybe 15 years ago. It was a unique jig, but the create hasn't been seen since. Any suggestions or pictures of other jigs created? I first seen these in dressers a guy called Autralian wood Art made He no longer uses the forums, but I liked his furniture..

I would like to make coin holders..

From that photo I don't understand what the jig does or how it does it. Which surfaces of the coin holder does the jig shape? The wide surface around the coin is somewhat depressed like a dish?

It dishes it out like a plate. Moves like a Guillotine.as you rotate the base it carves it till it is fully dished out...

Still hard to make out what is going on in the photo of the jig. Maybe..., the inner ring that clamps the router body is connected to the outer top ring by 2 pins/shafts across from each other, a bowl or round nose sign bit, tilt the top of the router forward and back to swing the bit in an arc. The bottom aluminum ring turns in the outer light colored ring to go all the way around.

There are only a few things out there in woodworking that I still feel challenged by and making this jig being one.

I would still like to make a dresser with this feature. Maybe it will happen and maybe it won't but I might try ...

It is a cool idea, jig and ability. I mostly make stuff for cats, I don't see myself needing the jig. I can't tell if the jig in your photo is manufactured, if DIY it'd take good metal working ability. The DIY wood versions in the photos look well with your skills. If there are some tracks in the work piece from play in the jig that's what sanding is for.

Its DIY. The orginator was considering getting it patented. But that was the last I heard...

Looking at the two jigs the second design has far more versatility because of the pivot adjustment choices. Both are limited in the diameter dish that can be made but the second one can make a variety of different bowl cross-sections, shallow to deep.

You can also add rotational indexing so the jig could also be used for making things like flower coasters or small trivets.

The original one can be made to ant specific size.bearing can be bought in many sizes. For me I only need a 4" bowl for keys or change.

I have the Lee Valley dowel jog and it has served me well for most jobs. I have also used dowel point to locate positions in wood of different thicknesses. The Jessem suggestion is really good and comes at a fair price (read review on protoolsadviser ). I do not have their dowel jig but I own other Jessem products and I am impressed with their quality.
