Beveling curved edges can be tricky. You can do it with a router bit, but that limits the size of the bevel you can cut. You can do it with a shaper, but they're expensive.

That's why we were impressed when Geoffrey Carson submitted an article proposal for cutting wide bevels using a modified panel-raising fence on the tablesaw.

You can read all about it in Carson's article in the latest issue of Fine Woodworking (the Jan/Feb issue, #217).

You can also watch this short slideshow/video to see the jig in action and to also see how it works on round tabletops, not just curved edges as discussed in the magazine.

Note: Pardon the delay in publishing this video. It was not available when the issue arrived in subscriber's homes.
