What Wood I Do

I can't tell from the picture what type of wood it is but there is a way to make the trim that I have used numerous times to make trim for round portholes on yachts I have renovated.
Use a router with a center pivot point to cut your circle at the largest diameter. Then measure your inside diameter of the trim and use the same pivot point with a plunge router to remove the inside waste. I find it best to then cut the trim into 4 pieces with a fine saw blade to avoid the possibility of breaking along the cross grain.
I used this method many times with teak and fastened the trim with screws and plugs.
