Default What do you think of this technique?

I was searching for a way to make semicircular grooves and I found this video:

It seems like a clever idea of making it.

What do you think about it?, the only problem I see is that it could be prone to kickbacks, and that your hand is too close to the saw at some points, but it seems to work.

(he's speaking in Spanish, doesn't matter if you don't understand, just skip to ~2 mins.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

look to several of those videos and you'll see there are way safer ways to do it than the way your link shows...

Yeah that too :P.

When I saw it I was like: "the moment he applies force in a wrong direction he will lose a couple of fingers".

The technique for cutting coves on a table saw is well known. As mentioned by other posters there are much safer ways of doing it. The generally accepted way is to set the angled fences (use two and trap the workpiece between them) in their final position and start with the saw blade protruding a few mm above the table and to take multiple passes raising the saw blade on each pass. The final result requires a lot less sanding than shown in the video.

If my memory serves me correctly Rockler market a cove-cutting jig.

PS Somebody needs to tell the guy in the video about push blocks and push sticks.

Default Cove cutting calculator and detailed information

Matthias Wandel at woodgears.ca has some very good information on this technique as well as a calculator to help you determine the setup you need for a particular cut.

I can't post URLs yet but lookup woodgears.ca

In the Shop Tricks section he has a link to his cove cutting information and calculator.
