Everything got a lot more complicated when this dang internet came out. Used to be that people where satisfied with what they had cause there was no other reliable source of further knowledge. Then Algore invented the internet and now everybody has the ability to know everything.
Sure makes life complicated

As you progress you'll be surprised as all hell when what used to confuse or intimidate becomes 2nd nature. Keep an ample supply of practice material around.
Don't work tired, sick or distracted.

My router was good fer nuthin' for over 30 years!!! I used it ONLY for mortising door hinges. Just made a mess out of everything else.

Now, in just a month, largely because of what I've read here, I've built a table and am raising panels!!!

I can't believe it! How did I get along without these things?? A router and table are essential now!

Just a reminder; there is more that can be achieved when the router is held in the plunge mode, with the aid of template guides. Check out the material below.
