Default concentric rings

What would be the technique to route multiple concentric rings? I would hope to be able to have them fit tight enough to glue togeather. Would that same technique work for an S pattern? I'm thinking oversize bearings or guide bushings.

Do you have an inlay kit for your router?

Welcome to the forum Guy, please put me out of my misery by explaining why you want to rout concentric circles if you are going to then glue them together! Why not simply rout the inside and the outside to the required size?

Default concentric circles

Hi and thanks
What I'm really looking for is to cut shapes that nest togeather tightly.
I'm a wood turner mostly. I'm experimenting. The concentric rings would be of different woods but not segmented rings. Possibly for platers or what I might conger up. I saw at a home show a demonstrator displaying a piece like I'm trying to make.
I didn't get to stay for that demo o well.

Default Rings

I forgot I have nothing but a few bits for the routers I inherated. I'd get what was suggested. Thanks
