The treads and risers went fine but the curved string wasnt level it was buckled and we tried gluing a veneer to it which wo...

I've had the makita for a couple of years and its been good. I only use it for trimming edging, routing hinges, rounding over etc. It's surprisingly well made for its cost.

Re: Circle made from wood

A 75 to 80mm holesaw should cut you a 70mm disc. Use the drill press and clamp the ply down to a sacrificial base. Then if the central drill bit is too big , do as Steve says and remove it. Drill your 4mm hole first then swap to the hole saw without the centre .
