Cutting a perfect circle with the router

I’m rebuilding a wind chime and needed 7-inch and 3-inch diameter wood circles. I went to both Lowes and Home Depot and neither had little wooden circles, nor could they cut them for me. So I picked up a piece of white pine, came home and figured out how to cut out a perfect circle using my router. I had to create my Bohemian circle cutting jig (keep in mind, I’ve only used this router a couple times) using a scrap piece of lumber and mounting it to the router’s guide rods. I was pretty stoked, while wishing I would’ve taken wood shop in high school.
