Default routing small round tables border

Thanks for making me a member of the router forum.
I have a table router and new at this hobby.
I have a 3/4 inch x 20 inch Diameter plywood and want to give the border a router touch,how I can work to maintain a perfect finish.
Thanks.

Enrique, a bearing guided bit will ride against the edge of your plywood and use it as a guide so you get a smooth finish. A better choice would be to glue some solid wood boards together and use your router to cut them into a circle. When you use a bearing guided bit or a template guide to follow a shape it is very important that the material be perfectly smooth. Any errors in your surface will be amplified in the cut. This photo shows a bearing guided round over bit set up for safe use. You will find instructions on building the VacGuard in a video on the forums. There are a couple of photos and a cutting list posted in my gallery.
