    I don't think I ever would have done it that way but I'm pretty impressed with your enormous plywood jig and the job looks perfect. You're a pretty sharp dude. Thanks for taking the time to share the pictures.

    Us older guys have to work smarter to keep up with you young guys :D


    I had 2 sheets of MDF with pencil marks where they lined up. It was actually easier and quicker than I thought

    I was following the thread since you first posted the question and didn't like your proposed solution at all. It sounded too troublesome. But seeing it laid out I realize that the whole jig could be made pretty quick and then once set up it's a breeze.

    Jolly good show!

    sweet jig!

    I've never made one attached to what I was cutting away from, only a "straightedge" ... "crooked edge"? and manual layout ... how many columns again? How long to build the jig?

    Sean I just measured the diameter of the column to get the radius. Cut out the shape of the column so it would kinda lock in then used same hole for the outside radius and marked where the two sheets of MDF lined up. It took me longer to explain to our sales staff what I was doing :) Thought about joining the two sheets of MDF together but to lazy. It was a lot easier to move as two sheets. Did about 8 foot of the outside edge at a time. The worst part was the larger sheet of MDF would not fit into the lift. Carried it up 6 floors
    The rest of the office floor is ground concrete with a poly on it. They may lay carpet tiles over the rest later. It will be interesting trying to lift the tiles I laid to cut the circle. The backing falls to bits
    There could also be another 6 floors to do so I am keeping the MDF

    Did you use carpet glue for that with a trowel?

    in holland we use fixing, pick-up or anti slip glue.

    I used the glue the importer supplied. Its one they want a 1.5mm notched trowel, let it go to a clear colour and then lay. Its not that green coloured glue which is used here a lot though
