Question by justwondering6400: whats a good way to make a 3 inch hole half way through a board?
right now I am using a router but that isn’t very precise and takes a while. what I am trying to do is make a circle 3 inches in diameter about 1/4 inch deep, into a board that is 1 inch thick. any idea’s?

Best answer:

Answer by Joey s
forstner bits are good for that kind of stuff but Im not sure if you can get one that big. If you have a 3 inch hole saw you could drill that into the board a quarter inch, and than cut the rest out with a router than you would itleast have a precise circle outline to go by.

edit: yes the pilot bit would go all the way, sorry I wasnt very specific but what I meant to say was use it in a drill press with no pilot.

    Sounds like router and template time to me.

    Use a hole saw. The pilot bit on a hole saw will ordinarily penetrate all the way through, but if this is objectionable, you can get a hole saw with an adjustable pilot bit that will extend only slightly farther than the main kerf.
