I built a circle jig for my bosch router. I used scrap plywood about 1/8” thick. Marked it up and sanded it down.That is about the same thickness as the base on the router. My first test cut went ok. I made a 6” hole. After looking at the price of some of the fancy manufactured jigs I decided to check out some how to videos on YT and attempt to make one. Not pretty but effective and I made it lol. This was made for my micro cab conversion from 10” to 12” speakers.

Nice job on the router jig. When I made a baffle for a 1x12 I was rebuilding I was trying to figure out how to use my router when I came across this for my jigsaw. Needed a little sanding after the cut but it did the job. Like you I prefer to do my own work - it's more satisfying to me :)
