    DIY Circle Center Finder

    FREE Drawing! Details below.

    The DIY homemade circle center finder tool shown in this video only took a few minutes to make and cost me nothing in terms of out-of-pocket funds.

    I have several of the small plastic speed squares around the shop, so I sacrificed one of them for this project. I had some scrap birch plywood, and plenty of #8 x stainless steel, flathead, screws on hand. This handy tool would still be quite inexpensive if I had to buy the materials though, and well worth it!

    Materials:
    (1) 8 x 8 square piece of birch plywood
    (1) small plastic speed square
    (3) #8 x stainless steel flathead sheet metal screws
    Actual time to make: About 20 minutes.
