Maple hole cutter. After looking at how old Spanish Classical Guits are built, decided to build my own variable circumference hole cutter. Works like a charm, and no risk of damaging the soundboard. Slow and steady wins the race.

Thanks Bernie, it was the right price too!  Can you post a picture of yours sometime?  I am always curious what others use besides the standard door hole cutters.

I have a steel one which I originally bought many years ago for harpsichords. Again absolutely indispensable. Your home-brew one looks and works great!
