Where do I find this . . .

I need something and I can not find it anywhere around town or on the internet. Very simple, I need 2 of the following:
19" diameter circle wood with rounded edge
4" diameter hole cut out directly in the center
1/2" in thickness
Will be painted so can be made of lower quality wood

I would do it myself, but I don't have the tools. Does anyone know where I could find something like this or could do it for me (depending on price)?

Not to be obvious, but you just need to find someone who does have the tools. Your description doesn't sound like any mass-produced item, so it'll be custom. Ask a local woodshop.

If you want it done cheaply, I would ask a local woodshop teacher at a high school. Mayeb you could pay a kid a few $$ to get it done.

You can buy them pre-made out of plastic or MDF at an electrical supply store. They're a standard item for dressing around ceiling fixtures or fans.
