try using a circular saw by setting the blade depth slightly more than the thickness of the template. you will never wanna use a saber/jig saw again.


so adjust the baseplate of a circular saw just slightly more than the plywood?

yep. you'll want the blade to just barely cut through the ply. that way the blade won't buckle or bind as you're cutting the curvature of the radius. (less resistance)

the 'base-plate' of the circular saw helps to keep your blade stable while you cut. And since there is more blade cutting the wood with a circular saw over a saber saw, you have more control over making a precise cut. (less chance of getting a 'wobbly' cut)

just make sure you take your time while you cut. a good pair of safety glasses and keeping an eye on your line makes all the difference.
