I guess the question is: Is there a formula to figure out how wide and long pieces need to be in order to glue them up, then trim them into a circle. Not sure I phrased that right but I want to make a circular frame that is about 20”to the outer edge in diameter and facings that are 1 1/2” wide.
No one is going to use a solid piece of wood because there would be too much waste. There has to be a formula to come up with the length and with of pieces to be glued up so you can trim into a circular frame. I guess I’ve said it now a couple of times and hope that I have explained what I’m trying to figure out.
Thanks in advance for any advice/assistance you could share with me.
