A jig for rounding turning squares

Before turning narrow pieces, such as chess pieces or dowels, between centers, it's easier on the workpiece (and the woodworker) to knock off the four corners, making the square spindle into an octagon. This simple guide clamps to your bandsaw table to do the job.

If your bandsaw table tilts no jig is required. Just use a fence, tilt the table to 45 degrees, and perform your cuts.

Have used this jig for many years. Works great.. One addition I prefer if the notch out in the base for the blade to run on the inside. You can adjust the amount you like to remove easier
