Elliptical Router Jig Photos by Rob Brown In reality, there are two jigs used to cut an ellipse: the ellipse jig and a very simple circle jig.To make the circle jig, cut a piece of 1/2" plywood to 6" x 48" and drill the appropriate holes in it to attach your router to one end, so the router is centered on the jigs' width.
Remove the material under the center of the router so the bit can protrude through the jig.A 1/16" deep groove, cut on the table saw, will assist in attaching the center of the circle jig accurately to the ellipse jig.

If you want to make smaller ellipses, you might want to take about 6" or more off both dimensions.Alternatively, you can make the jig larger if you have a conference table in your sights.The circle jig will also have to be sized accordingly.
