Small Discs Jig

I want to create small discs of various sizes. Absolutely round,3/4" thich, smooth edges for gluing. I remember seeing a v-block jig for rounding a rough cut discs, but unable to relocate details re jig use. Pros and cons are welcome. I want to gather more info before using this method.

Assistance is always appreciated.

Firstly Will, welcome to the forum.

When you say "small discs of various sizes", what sizes are you talking about.

You could use a template or circle jig to cut the discs. They would not be "rough cut" and would need little smoothing.

How do you intend to glue them? On edge? side by side?

Thanks for the welcome. I want to make a serving board with different widths of differnet woods. When this is glued together, I then want to route a circle through the wood board. At this time I want to use a Disc near the thickness of the board, cut it in half, taper the edges and then use as a "plug" to fill the hole from both siges of the board. This will give the appearance of the "plug" being a solid piece of wood.

the tapered egdes will allow a very snug fit into the hole.

Does this make sense?? The hole in the board and the corrresponding "plug" could be of different sizes relating to the visual aspects of the entire board.

Will

Assistance is alwasy appreciated.

Apart from wanting to cut right through the board, it sounds like you want to achieve an inlay effect. For my money, I would settle of going the inlay route, working from each side but cutting and inlaying a maximum of 1/8in deep.

To do this you need a home made template for the patterns you want, and an inlay kit. The kit included a small bit (typically 1/8in) a template guide, and a spacer that fixes onto the template guide. Many suppliers produce the kits and most have web videos on using them.

In use you cut the recess and the inlay piece using the same template, and adding or removing the spacer to the template guide ensures that the inlay and recess match, unless you have sharp corners, where the recess will have a corner radius equal to the bit radius. In that instance you can trim the corners of the recess, or round the corners of the inlay to match. Here is a link to a video explaining the method.

If you make the master template reversible, you should be able to get a very close match for the inlays so it looks as though the go right through the board. Hope this helps you.

For cutting the tapered plugs you might want to consider these

Woodworker.com: Patented Rtss-2000153 Stubby Plug Cutters Use Compound Radial Taper To Cut Short Plugs That Fit, Set - Rtss Plug Cutter Set Of Three

They could then be driven into drilled holes (with glue) from both sides and the excess trimmed off.

Simple way to cut disks. You just need to cut template first with hole jig.

The inlay technique provides more options for varying the pattern. One could have cherry on one side and say, walnut on the other. Would be a neat appearance.
