Introduction: Deep Dish Cove Cut Slab Table Top Experiment

About: I am a teacher who enjoys environmentally responsible woodworking. Most evenings will find me in the shop working with my now 8 year old son Shay who is both my greatest helper and biggest fan.

Using a circular cove cut to dish an entire slab table top on the table saw.  Please keep in mind this is an experiment as part of an idea for another build.  That said it seemed to work and work well so I am sharing it here.  I have never seen this done before on this scale.  This is an *at your own risk* situation.  However nothing I saw, felt or heard during the experiment leads me to think that this is not a viable option for rough cutting deep dish circular slabs on a table saw.  It would take a very large end lathe to replicate what I did here and I don't think it would be all that much faster or any more/less dangerous.
