The one I saw was on Woodworks with David Marks
where he uses a jig to round some purple heart decorations into the legs of
I have done it, so easy it's preposterous. Say the simplest circle cutting jig
use on a band saw:
A nail in a small board.
The side of this board is up against the blade, or the disc. The circle wood the
same width from the center, where the nail is.
The nail as well goes into your circle board kinda like a hinge, turn slowly to
cut or disc sand. It all must be measured from the nail to the [cutter] to the
size wheel you want, again center to [cutter]
The lower board must be larger so it can be clamped down onto the table, I got
great results using the same on both machines.

Use a 1/4 pin for your bandsaw, 1/8 for your sander to make sure you get
those pesky tooth marks cleaned off. The miter to working surface is a half
inch different on mine, so I have to use two jigs.
Reason for this over a router is the uphill problem. If you use a router
and trammel, use a spiral bit.
