Low tech circle cutter

Simple. Perfect. I never believed the hype.

could you please do a post with more pictures and/or an explanation of this device?

specifically, what exactly is that handle bit and did you make this or buy it?

I'll sort a better pic when I get the chance. But my setup consists of a small hand drill (the thing that looks like a piece of bent wire), a wooden block under the soundboard, a scrap piece of wood (you're supposed to do this with a flat lollipop stick but I had none) and a scalpel blade jammed through the stick.

Choose the diameter, push the scalpel blade down and make some turns. Then push the blade a little deeper. Work with care and you're done in five minutes!
