One of the things about being a bit more proficient as a woodworker is how things that used to be complicated are now much simpler.
Last fall I made a bandsaw circle cutting jig to cut out the opt of a craftsman table I built. Tonight, I needed to cut out two 19 7/8” circular pieces of OSB for the separator I am going to try on my dust collector. Cut two pieces of 19 7/8” OSB, drilled a small hole in the centers, put a cut-off nail on the mark for a 19 7/8” circle on my jig, slid the two pieces onto the pin one after another, and the two pieces couldn’t have fit better as reinforcement for the lid. The sit just on the small lip that remains after cutting out the middle of the lid with a jig saw.
All quick and easy thanks to a well-thought out, but simple jig.
