Hi, I made a small plate and use it for a spoon rest on the stove. How could I make a handle opening in the lip of the plate. I don’t have a spindle sander or anything like that. Thanks M9ike

Mike, how big is the plate and how big do you want to make the hole ?
I would clamp the plate firmy in wood clamps and use the Forstner bit.
with a good firm foundation and sharp bit, you won’t need the spindle sander.
the table on my drill press rotates, this is how I envision clamping it in position.

I have been thinking about other projects, that is one I don’t have any I can work with right now. I never thought of my dremel. Thanks Mike
