The jig would be useful for many things lew but the one I'm looking for is really small and can be used on large projects. Thx...

 

The Dewalt 625 has centering slots on each side I'm thinking I can mount metal pins in and center pivot it.

Straight bits come I believe 3" long. It looks like a bowl  but is actually just a key or change bowl. Doesn't have to be 3" deep. Shallow and wide  would be fine...

 

I think the pivot probem  isn't too complicated but the turning is. Either way the router will have to be mounted to a turntable. ..

 

It's too bad the guy from Woodnet Isn't around to look at the jig. I can't find a picture of it either...

I was thinking about the router as a pendulum but that would limit the depth to circumference ratio.

It is... at this point he router can only make a certain size rout. A larger rotating base and a longer base will make a larger bowl. 3-4 inch radius  is all I'm after. Otherwise a penilum as suggested in the picture above would be needed...

I was thinking more like the router hanging from a rope.
