Once the driver holes have been cut and countersunk and the veneer applied over them, what is the recommended process to cut the veneer out of the speaker holes in a perfect circle ?

Have used that process before but not always succesful or attractive. Tried my flush cut router bit but with the bearing and the retaining bolt it will not go deep enough.

Rough cut the circle in the veneer first using jigsaw or even a small handsaw or knife depending on veneer thickness. Then use a router with a flush trim bit to clean the cut up.

If you cut the rough circle first you can then rout from the veneer side and so depth will not be an issue.

Someone on this forum advised me to use this sort of bit... it worked extremely well cutting both cherry veneer and walnut veneer. The bearing surface is not nearly as deep as the roller bearing on most trim bits. Router from the veneer side.

Chris’, with iron on method, made sure that he stressed the veneer at the edge where it needed rimming and then used n exact knife.
