Cut custom coves on your table saw without juggling all those fences and clamps! This jig includes everything you need for safe, easy coving in one easy-to-use package. Accepts stock up to 7" wide and 1-1/2" thick, enabling you to cut huge crown moldings that would cost a fortune from the lumberyard. Try angling the blade for a truly unique shape. Ingenious clamping system secures the fences using the 3/4" miter slots on the saw table. Large, easy grip knobs make for quick, tool-free setups. Included featherboard kit holds stock firmly to the table for added safety, precision and repeatability.

Cove cutting jig
I have to say that this is a very cool jig. Granted you can make a jig similar but this is a well made jig that is easy to adjust fits well on my porter cable 10" table saw and I have used it to make cove molding thru-out our house. It saves a bundle by not having to purchase box store cove, and you can make it any size you need or want. Making it more customizable for each project.
If you are going need cove molding I would highly
recommend this Rockler cove cutting jig

why else to safely cut coves,i hope it will save me a lot of set up time i work a full time job and setting up this on the table saw should save me a ton of time to work on my projects and not spend half a day setting up the old way. will review after i have used it.

The cove cutting cutter for my table saw will make cutting grooves larger than my router bits can cut for some of my projects. I would sometimes use a chisel and sander to cut out the entire groove needed.

Safer then the way I was going to have to cut a cove for a "fine woodworking project"
Richard H on Jul 26, 2016
I have a new project that requires a lot of thirty six inch long coved pieces that need to be two inches wide. Since I don't have a two inch router bit and if I did it would be more expensive than this Coving jig. It's more convenient, for this job, to use this jig and eliminate clamping fumbles for a make shift fence on my saw. Plus, the Rockler jig makes it easy to clamp to the protractor slots on the table.

DOUG E on Feb 29, 2016
Finding larger cove moulding at big box hardware store is impossible, and even if they did have it, the cost would be prohibitive. My guess is that this jog will pay for itself in the first 100 lf of cove moulding made.

Cliff S on Mar 5, 2020
Wondering what the angle of cut translates to in regard to the radius of the cove? Any help would b appreciated
Dan R on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dan: Google "cove cutting calculator". There are several out there that will give you exactly what you're looking for. I've used the one at FWW magazine's web site.
Can you do material thicker than 1.5" by shimming up the jig?
otherguy on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't think you would have to shim up the jig. Just adjust your hold down to allow the thicker wood through. If your wood is thicker than what will slide beneath the bars across the ends you could shim them up if you need to. In fact, if you needed to you could remove the bars and clamp the jig parts to the table. Just be sure to take shallow cuts as you run your wood through the jig, and take it slow enough you don't flex the blade. Remember, if you are a wood worker you don't always have to have the "perfect" setup to turn out a great project, you just have to be able to think ahead, improvise where you need to, and above all else do things SAFELY at all times. If there is a risk of harm involved, either figure out how to do it safely or ask someone for advise. Using this jig, always keep in mind that eventually that spinning blade will emerge from the under the end of that board! Stay Safe, Stan H.
would using a dado stack be a good approach?
Ed P on Jan 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure you could use a dado stack. I can't think of any reason that you would need to though?
I thought that this jig came with a booklet to help you calculate the outcome ?
Z N on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I did not receive a booklet. The easiest thing to do is have a piece of molding that you are trying to match and place it in the jig and adjust the jig accordingly
What type of blade do you recommend (My saw: 10" contractor's table saw)
Steve Patton on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Peter's 60 tooth blade is a good place to start. I wouldn't use a thin kerf blade because it tends to be a bit too flexible where as a regular kerf has a bit more steel to keep it stiffer. Either would be fine if you take shallow cuts and don't fee too fast. The sharper and cleaner the blade is the smoother the cut. a 40 tooth would also not give as smooth a finish so it would take more sanding. Experiment on a piece of scrap if you need to, that approach has kept me from ruining a bunch of projects. Stay Safe, Stan H.
having never cut coves before, would I be able to cut a partial cove. i.e., a 1/2 or 3/4 circle cove? Thanks in advance for any reply
Roger on Dec 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can, this jig works very well, the Cove is dependent on the Depth setting on your table saw, Mine uses a 10" Blade, but if you change to a smaller blade you can cut smaller coves, the 10" will cut 1/2" cove no problem..
Hope this helps...
can you start 1" or so from the top and end 1" from the bottom?
bob b on Dec 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If I understand the question it would be similar to doing a stopped cut on a router table. I suppose it could be done but I would consider it dangerous to do. The best process for making the tablesaw cove cuts is to progressively increase the depth of cut over several passes to achieve your final profile. I have created a false stopped cut by attaching a beveled piece to each end of a long cove cut to simulate a gradual or tapered entry into the full cove cut.
What clamps the jig to the table saw? The mitre bar will just slide? My track is not a t-slot but a straight 3/4 mitre track.
S T on Apr 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The metal pieces that go in the track expand and are held by friction. No need for a t- track. I have used this jig quite a bit with hard woods. It always has done what I need.
I need to use a molding head on a Dewalt table saw that creates 3 grooves, will this fence work for that purpose?
James M on Dec 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is typically used at an angle to the saw blade to create a cove.
From what you're describing you will be using your molding head inline with the fence I don’t think that this will do what you want.
There’s a good video demo on the Rockler website
of the cove jig in use.

Good luck!
