Cutting Large Circles


Drawing a large circle on your wood for a circular table top can be a challenge, so try this. Use a push pin to anchor one end of a piece of lightweight cord in the center of the board, then tie a loop equal to the radius of your circle. I wanted a 20″ circle, so I made my radius loop 10″ from the push pin. Then place your pencil in the loop and slowly rotate it around the pushpin, creating a perfect circle!

Until next time,
