    Thanks for the pics, Don. I'd been wondering how to get the curved slots cut evenly, but your trammel point thingie (or whatever it's called) on the router makes perfect sense. Where did you pick up the little red face plate? (I'm assuming it's still called a face plate, even though it's so small.) Like Stu, you just added to my to-do list. Dang it, can't you see I'm already busy?!?.

    Vaughn, I know that LV sells them, they are aluminum, and great for an application like this one.

    Cheers!

    Nice work Don! That's been on my to-do list for over a year now.

    Why couldn't you just mount a round block for wood instead of a face plate? Then you could just mount it in the chuck and not have to take it off. Anything I am missing anything?

    I got the faceplate from Rockler.
