Routing a circle
Good morning, folks
I am making a shop stool, and need to cut a circle out of a 1-1/2" thick blank of Oak. I'm planning on using my router with a circle jig, but the longest bit I have is a 3/8" diameter upcut spiral with a 1-1/4" cutting length. Presuming I make multiple passes lowering the bit slowly, should I be able to make this cut, or do I need to find a bit with a longer cutting length?
