Default #1 suggestion

I want detailed information on how to make the jig that you use for mortising.
The one that uses bearings and is self centering.

1) How to use the router to make larger tenons-i.e. greater than 3/4inch long.
2) Or other ways to make mortises and/or tenons using the router, such as template routing similar to the prohibitively expensive Leigh Jig ~US$750.00.
3) Dadoing when the plywood is non-standard thickness.
4) Dust protection. Wood species to avoid as too hazardous. I've read that in 19th Century English workshops the mahogany shop was filled with workmen who acquired an occupational disease they termed mahogany cough from working with mahogany.
5) Avoiding finishing problems caused by glue oozing from joints. Do you wipe with wet sponge ala Norm or wait until partially dry and remove with a scraper blade?
6) Should router bits be cleaned? What chemicals to avoid?
7) When using a router, when is a hot router or bit too hot? When should you stop and let it cool down. What causes this?
Thank you

How about some specific tips and encouragement for those who want to but have never operated a router. Maybe many have received them for Christmas gifts this past month and don't know exactly how to get started. You know...."How To Get Started" or "Words of Enciuragement For The Beginner."

I have never thought of this and yes maybe we need to include the "how to get started" element to the email router tip.

Various router jigs and applications for wood work projects. I recall a TV show that utilized a jig for cutting 45 - 60 degrees. Other jigs for applications to do a variety of joint types.

Could you show some pictures of your shop? I see your show every week that the Seattle and Tacoma PBS stations have you on. I can only recall seeing your shop panned from the left (our right) where Bob works to the opposite where Rick is. Obviously the preparation takes many steps to where we actually get to see your projects being built.
Thanks for having the show and many thanks to Mark for this great site. -Derek
