Cutting circles in drywall can be a dusty, inexact process. Trying to stick to the pencil line you drew around your coffee can, especially with your 14,000 rpm rotary tool, sometimes results in ovals rather than circles. If you’d like beautiful circles cut into your drywall, try a tool like this Stanley circle cutter. It is adjustable in 1/8″ increments up to 8-1/4″. You can even look like a pro with its one-handed operation. Available for about $10 from All-Wall.com, the drywall superstore.
About Marc Lyman
Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!
