Hard to tell when and where an oversize circle might come in handy!

In a previous episode an oversize plywood circle was easily
cut with nothing more than a table saw.


Today watch as a router pivot guide made from scrap wood is
used to cut a circle and a hole simultaneously!

There are all manner of complicated router guides – both shop
made or commercially sold- but truth be told a perfectly
functional guide can be made in minutes with a piece of scrap
wood and two holes drilled the proper distance apart.

Set up your router with a template bushing and a fluted bit
and your hole AND circle will be cut in a few quick minutes!
