I have an entertainment center that I want to turn some 6" tall legs for to get it up off the ground. I sold my lathe, but kept my router table. It seems to me I might have seen an episode of router workshop where they made a jig to turn round pieces, but I can't remember for sure.

I can probably design and build one myself, but why reinvent the wheel?

Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

Wood magazine had an online article about it. You can kind of see how it works here.

Basically you make two circles, equal diameter for straight legs, different diameter for tapered legs, and screw them to the ends of your stock. You then build a sled like the one shown, and pass the stock over the bit, and rotate it in the sled.

Hope this helps,

router jig

Check youtube searching for "How to Turn a Cylinder with a Router" and watch the posting from Woodworkers Guild. You will need to adjust the measurements just a little but this should work for you.
