Circle cutting with trion
« on: September 02, 2017, 03:38 PM »
I will need to cut a 15" circle in Tigerwood in a cutting board I'm making.  I have a trion and ordered a circle cutting jig but after reading a few reviews, I'm wondering if I should cancel my order.  If it doesn't work well, why not?  What other options are there without a bandsaw to cutting a circle?  I know a router would work but I use a router table instead of a handheld router.  I suppose I could get one but if the trion would realistically work in 19mm thick boards, I would rather use that.  Is the Trion circle cutter really that bad?

I think I found a better solution.  MLCS has a router table jig that looks like it would work perfectly...
