I don't know about you but am always looking around for something curved to use for a pattern for curved cutouts. I'm currently working on a coffee table that has a lot of different radii, radiouses......curves. This prompted me to take the time to make some radius templates. I fastened an extension support to my band saw table and marked off in two inch increments 6" through 24" and then in 4" increments through 60" . I then cut up a 5' x 4' portion of 1/4" plywood starting at the 60" radius and using a screw as a pivot point then moving it closer to the blade on subsequent cuts.
Photo 1, the result is this very handy stack of radius patterns that I have hung on the wall with with some nails and which has already proved quite useful.
Photos 2, 3 and 4 shows the table base and all the different radii patterns needed.
My shop is slowly evolving, working out my work flow and tool arrangement and has now been in use for one year.
I'll post the table when I get further along.
