Cutting sinkhole into kitchen counter

Any advise on cutting a sinkhole in a post form countertop? What is the best bit? What about using a template, or free-hand? Is the router the best tool to use or should I go with a jig saw? Thanks for replying.

Hi,Gerry: If you are going to do alot of counter tops, it would pay to make a template
and use a router with a template guide, and a spiral bit. A sink basin usually comes with a paper template, or instructions for making the hole. I would suggest you lay out the paper template, drill holes through the counter top and use a jig saw with a good blade. Don't push it to hard those post forms do chip.
Good luck. Woodnut65
