Going in Circles
I'm building a turntable, and I was hoping you good folks could tell me the best way to cut a 36 inch diameter wheel out of a sheet of plywood?
I've tried this before, and I used one of those pre-fabricated hardwood tabletops from a Big Box store. It worked ok in the end, though it was an expensive solution. The thing that tripped me up the most was the difficulty I had in finding the exact center so I knew where to bore the hole for the shaft.
This time I want to cut the wheel myself, so I know EXACTLY where the center is. I'm thinking that 3/4" or 1" plywood should do the trick.
