Topic tags/keywords: question milling shaping circle

Does anyone have advice on how to cut a circle approximately 25” in diameter from 1/2” stock? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Your welcome…if you decide you would rather make your own circle cutting jig for your router instead of buying one…me or just about any of us would be happy to tell you how.
