    Has anyone made a jig for rosette routing? I want to make one. The reason is that I'm starting an acoustic build soon, and the top is Western Red Cedar - which doesn't cut at all well if you use a hand tool (circle cutter) for the soundhole and rosette. It's too soft, and it tears out way too easily.

    I bought a new router a week ago so I'm looking to see if anyone has made a rosette cutting jig for use with the router. Preferably one that is adjustable.

    I use a light duty laminate trimmer and a homemade plexiglass circle cutting base that can be adjusted for different diameters.

    Thanks :) I ended up making a jig several weeks ago out of some black acrylic. However it is non adjustable so I just finished having an adjustable one laser cut out of acrylic not long ago, although I'm yet to test it out :)
