Hi, I think that someone has already shown it but just to share my thoughts with you about that. Rather easy though I had a friend who helped me turning the "wheel" while radiusing the dishes. Alone would heve been more difficult...

From a square
Image

a home-made compas
Image

First ring
Image

And two others (one for a 15 foot radius - back, one for a 28 foot radius - folk top, one for a 25 foot radius - classical top)
Image

Some straight wood on which I trace the radius (the sagita).
Image

on one side 15 foot (on the other 28 foot)
Image

The the Stew machine
Image

Checking out with a cardboard, -7.5mm for 15 foot et -4mm for the 28 foot (for a distance of 52.4cm long)
Image
Image
Image

Then for real with a pin in the center
Image

The 15 foot bars
Image

The using the machine
Image

Careful near the center, so as not to lean with all my weight, though the wood don't bend easily
Image

Then the final check out
Image

Then a fast sandind and varnish to protect
Image

Very nice demo! Thank you. I am planing to do this task soon.

How did you center the router between the rails? What bit did you use?
