Last year, I made trophies for a disc golf tournament. I’ve been asked to make 72 of them for another tourney this year. In the photo below, I used solid oak for the disc. The radius is 9 1/4 inches.
To keep the price down, a friend suggested using oak fibercore for the discs. I can save a bundle, but I don’t want to compromise on quality of product.
What are your thoughts on oak fibercore vs. solid oak? I know the fibercore will stain much darker, and I’m OK with that.
I use a 3/8” roundover bit for the edges of the disc. Any feedback on how well this material will respond to my router? I’m assuming this is the material I’ve seen used on cabinet doors. It seems to do OK on the router.
I’d appreciate any feedback and advice on this project.
