    A jig saw is probably the cheapest way out.

    That was a funny vid, lol

    I would cut the inside of the ring first, then cut the outside of the ring and it drops out of the mdf. I found it to be a lil easier.

    yea with fiberglass you wont see the inside or outside of the ring if its not perfectly a circle so a jigsaw is cheapest bet.
