Hi, I have just bought a house at Lake Chapala, Mexico and having a great time making furinture for the house. My next project is to make a oak and wallnut oval coffee table 6ft by 4ft and would like to know how to make a router jig to cut ovals. I intend to construct the table out of 1 inch boards glued together. with inlays of other ovals within the table.

Do you have jig info that I can copy that will work for this project?

G'day Rick.

Welcome to the router forum.

Thank you for joining us

The Rockler ellipse jigs only go to 52" in major axis, but you could use that jig to make a template which you could increase in size using a template guide and on of BJ's famous doughnuts.

Rick and Peter,
Here's another jig you can make at very low cost:
Router Jig for Ovals and Circles | Making Ovals & Circles Routers
The larger the plywood square, the larger the ellipse. I'd start around 20" square for the size you want. Make the arm about 36" long.I didn't compute the actual sizes you'll need for a 6'long by 4' wide table top. I use this jig to make 1/2" MDF patterns and then pattern-route the table tops. You will need a pretty large work table for this operation, say a 4'x8' sheet of plywood or MDF and routing MDF makes a heck of a dusty mess. Make your pattern outdoors if possible, unless, of course, you have a Festool router and dust capture system.
