Stumbled across this forum when I was looking for some advice on routers seems to be great forum! I was hoping I might be able to get some guidance and advice on some questions I have?
Now Iíll premise my questions by saying that My woodworking skills are very limited (and thatís being kind) so please forgive my questions in advance for the newbieness
Iím looking to build a speaker project that uses two bamboo IKEA bowls joined together to make sphere speakers.
I couldnít include a link as Iím new but they are two bowls 11inches in diameter joined together.
Hereís a pic of one
The speaker driver cutout is meant to go on the bottom base.
Now my main question is what is the best approach using a router to make a recessed hole so that the speaker is flush mounted in one half (bowl) I could use a hole saw but then I wouldnít be able to have a 4mm recess to make the speaker driver flush.
Iíve bought a jasper jig to make the circular holes but Iím not sure (given itís not a flat surface) how I would go about doing the cut out.
I havenít bought a router yet so any suggestions would be appreciated Iíve looked at a couple of routers that are both plunge and fixed but they are getting up there in price and Iím assuming I would also potentially need a router table as well?
If anyone could offer some advice on how best to approach making a circular rebate/recess that would be really appreciated. Baring in mind this will be my first router project and generally new to woodworker.
Also, any comments on a reasonable price setup that would do the job. I donít want to go too cheap but also would like to keep as cheap as possible given my current skill set!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
