Ellipse-fest 2010: Brought to you by Archimedes

I'm making several ellipses, each a different size, as parts for a dining table. Enter the trammel of Archimedes.

Here it is in action

With this trammel, the X and Y dimensions are adjustable to allow for endless variation in size and shape of ellipse.
In place of the pencil, will be a router for cutting out the shapes.

Something about precise geometry really gets my neurons firing.
