a easy way is to use a hole saw set as in this link , http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?q=hole+saw+set&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=r72&rls=org.mozilla:en-GBfficial&channel=np&prmd=imvns&resnum=1&bav=on. 2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1013&bih=620&um=1&ie=UT F-8&tbm=shop&cid=14139703040579854175&sa=X&ei=PpHkTr TPNI3Z8gP9s6iCBA&ved=0CLoBEPICMAM

Spinning a set of compasses in a drill wouldn't be my first choice for cutting out a circle!

I like my eye's and fingers.

Drills and Proper Hole Cutters all day long.

Meh.....looks pretty safe to me, plus there is the benefit of sizes not included in a hole cutter set.

Go slow, take your time, and all should be well.

If you have a Michaels home hobby store by you they sell a compass with a razor to cut perfect circles. It works awesome too and was only $7

Use OLFA circle cutter. It's easy as well as cheap.
