DIY Round Trestle Dining Table

We wanted to build an awesome round dining table, but didn't want to deal with the hassle of using a jigsaw and getting a not to perfect circle. So I created a simple jig and used my plunge router to make a perfectly circle dining room table top!
Using the plunge router jig
First step was to assemble the base for the table.
Screw the 2x6 boards together for the table top.
Cut out the table top using the plunge router.
Our top is ready for sanding! Be sure to sand well and prepare the surface to stain.
Once stained, attach the base to the top.

    What router cutter did you use. It's dimensions would be useful. How many passes. What depth increase each time.
