Circle Center Finder

I came across this 10″ Round Center Finder on Amazon. $14 on 3/21/2020. I ordered one a few months back.

It works pretty good. It is fairly well made out of 1/8″ plexi with good printed lines that do not scratch off to easy.

I improved mine by highlighting the 8″, 6″ and 4″ circles with red, green, and blue sharpie permanent pen.

I use an Ice Pick in the center of mine rather than a nail.

I like it better than my home made plywood circles because it is transparent. It allows me to see where the pith is on a log and play around with putting the pith dead on center or not on center.

  1. Carl,

    I found that I can make two of these from a single large “Cone of Shame” (the cones they put on dogs after surgery). I made mine almost exactly like this one and gave the second to a good friend, likewise I color coded different diameters. For a center finder, I use my center marking tool.

    Cheers Fellow Turner!
