That is how i started out. In the end we had to start from scratch because the Fostex illustration was not accurate enuff.

I know this is an old thread but here's another trick to getting super clean circles on both sides using just a router and circle jig.

Set your circle jig and begin cutting your circle in small increments. Start with 1/4" deep at a time. When you get near to routing through leave 1/16" material at the bottom of the cut and stop the router. Now punch out the plug with your hands being careful not to tear, rip or otherwise mar the edge. Get out your panel trimming bit, looks like an upside down template bit, and finish the cut on the finish side. Panel trimming bits are used for installing Formica counter tops or trimming other veneers. They come in different sizes from 1/8" to about 1/2" with a bearing on the BOTTOM rather than the top. You could also use a round over, chamfer or any other pilot bit to finish the hole. Makes a very clean finish on the front of the baffle. Excellent idea if you are using veneer plywood and perfect for chamfering or rounding the inside opening for a small woofer.
