I used 8 pieces of Sapele and cut them at 22.5 degrees to make the circle, then glued those together with end-lap mitre joints.
For clamping I used ordinairy screws and made sure to put them outside the circle. I did the same for the glass bead.
I made a template for use as router jig, then rough-cut the outside of the circle with the bandsaw and the inside with the jigsaw.
After that, I worked it round with the router.
It’s a fixed window with double glazing, 300 mm diameter.
