this is a simple circle cutting jig .needed to make some circle and it works picked it up from American Woodworker editor Tim Johnson here in his video shows the simplicity of it

its a simple jig that works and don’t cost an arm and leg. i dont expect to win a jig contest with it in Stumpy Nubs contest . I know he always on the humorous side of it but hes a master craftsman that understands everybody cant get these high dollar tools and is showing how to build alternatives of them .Don’t get me wrong if i had the money im buying them i would a lot rather spend my time building what i want than the tool to do it.but some of us dont and people like him and many others on this site spend their time and money to help us along so thank you and the other LJs to many to list.-...................wonder if i sucked up enough to win :)

I would say you sucked up just right. And the happy face cutout is the cherry on top.

Eddie I found the link;)
Nice jig. The simple ones are the best. If they do not have a lot of setup, you will find yourself using it. KISS,my dad always said, keep it simple stupid!
Nice jig and smiley!

You’re a shoe in for an award; The SUTSA! (Suck Up To Stumpy Award) ;)

A jig is good IF, it is accurate, easy to setup & use. I think you accomplished that. Great job.

Great job eddie. I always wondered why my circles were so plain. I never thought to put a smiley face on them…..
