I am making a fan type knife block. It is made from seven wedges with spacers for the knives. My plan was to glue it up then cut a circle/curve on both ends to even everything up. It is 3" wide by 12" long by 12" tall.

Band saw circle jig? Make a circle pattern then pattern bit on router table? I think I will have to cut the curve before putting the spacers in to avoid blowing out every edge.

Advise needed.

Jamie.

I would still use the bandsaw but would place sacrificial wedges between each section to prevent blowout. Then just remove the wedges and you should have a clean edge. Use a finer tooth blade, though.

The same style jig for cutting curves on a bandage works on sanding machines too.

I dont like those type of jigs. The piece is loose and can get out of control. I prefer a home made version similar to the commercial jigs that lay flat with clamps to hold your work. Microjig and Rockler have some examples.
swap the sticky tape for non-skip...
