Lightbulb No...no...not like that...! ! ! CHALLENGE

Following on from the original thread then.
How to safely, and hopefully reasonably accurately accomplish the same job with normal woodw-working power tools?

I've come up with a plan for the outer circumference but the inner face has me puzzled.
Remember we're talking safely here.

vacuum clamp or DS tape the ring down to a firm surface and use a way smaller (trim) router...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Put four pieces of wood around it, same width, to support the router...inside with round over bearing guided bit and Stick 's trim router...

Nick; the inner circ. ideally should be perfectly circular and exactly parallel to the outer face and I'm just guessing, but probably a precise diameter(?).
The tools I get, but what's the perfect template? It can't be the existing, that's why it''s being cleaned up.
Remember, no lathe here. Unless of course you had a wood lathe and a four jaw chuck?

Nick I like your idea of supporting the sides ,as that's what I'd do .

I would secure it with double sided tape , and cut a piece of mdf with my circle jig to create a perimeter to support the router around its perimeter . The bearing or whatever it is would be inside the circle I left in the mdf .

Ok ,I never insulate

Hhmmm...good point...in my scenario the face is good and only needed a rounding...

Rick's scenario cuts the face to size and cleans it up...and parallel to the outside face...

I like that better...

Of course, later, I'll have to come up with a Rube Goldberg solution...

Maybe you could double stick tape it to a board and run a trim router around it inside and out. Then flip it over and do the same.
