Diameter wood

I have a 17 inch round wood that I want to carve, how do I set zero on it ?

I would find center and work from there

They do have circle centering tools which allows you to mark the center, I have one deigned here: https://easel.inventables.com/projects/l2Cmpx5mQtEwEUjdVkbKaA

A fairly easy method is to draw a chord in the circle … say 8" across. Then draw a perpendicular line from the exact middle of that chord through the center of the circle. You can then repeat this a few times around the circle and where the perpendicular lines meet should be the exact center of the circle. I would recommend at least three to get a good reference.

Then there is always this option in the Triquetra Tool Box

Or if you use Easel, Select the Left Front Corner XYZ with Offset option and enter the Radius of your circle as the Offsett value for the X and Y axis.
