Here I was… just looking online how to make a perfect circle. After seeing many creative ideas online, I thought I would mimic a design that Rockler and another has. Although my Jig isn’t set up for every size diameter circle… I did save the 40-60 dollars I would have spent on one. It was a quick little project and used an Alder drawer front that I had lying around. I have an older router and new up-cut spiral bit made by Frued in which I customized the jig to. I was commissioned to make some circles base plates for some display fire hydrants for my Chief. I used thick 1.5” pine table extension leafs in which I performed a glue up. The jig works very well; I chamfer the sides and finished it with some paste finishing wax. I used an older drill bit as the pin to rotate around.
