The 18" button is hand crafted from pine boards and "sewn" with parachute cord. Now all I have to do is find a really big sweater...
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- 18" pine round circle from Home Depot
- parachute Cord
- picture hanging supplies
- router w/ circle jig
- palm sander
- painting supplies
- large spade drill bit
Step 2: Find center of circle
Check it out and use it as step 1...How to find the center of a circle.
Step 3: Route out center of circle
I used a Jasper Circle Jig to create a crisp boundary on the exterior of the area that is being routed out. I then routed out the center by freehand.
I used an 1/4" bit with the Jasper Jig since that's what it requires, but then switched to a 1/2" bit to do the rest so it would go a bit faster. All in all it took about 10 minutes. Not too bad.
