When using a compass to make circles for my chip-carving projects, there are times when I don't want to leave a hole in the center of the circular workpiece. What to do? I created a "temporary" hole from a small square of clear acrylic as shown in the drawing. For "feet," I went with self-adhesive cabinet-door bumpers (Woodcraft part no. 02S81, 800/225-1153 or available online).
