Can anyone recommend an easy way to cut a decent circle from mdf?

All i have at my disposal at present is a jigsaw and a router (only just learning about the router though). I am pretty good with a jigsaw but wondered if there was a method of getting the circle exactly round easily?

I was just going to try and jigsaw around the circle outline freehand.

Thanks for any advice

Calv.

I'd rough out the circle with the jigsaw and finish it with the router and a circle jig as in the link PaulH posted.

Here's an adjustable one I made, which is useful if you need to ensure that the circle is an exact size



And here it is in action



Hope this helps.

Cheers :wink:
