Watch how to build a Router Circle Cutting Jig. If you are following my Tenor Guitar series, this jig will be used to cut out the rosette, make the channel to inlay the rosette in the guitar top and cut the soundhole in the guitar top.

Thanks for the post Randall. I like how compact it is. Any chance you could post a link to the plan?

Doug -

Here’s a link to the American Woodworker circle jig plan.

Look for the paragraph called Adjustable Trammel. there is a link there for an exploded diagram of the jig.

I deviated from this plan in that I used 1/2” plywood instead of 3/4” and I made the pivot arm rectangular instead of the stepped design.
