    A few details about myself.
    Hello all. My name is Mickey. I am fairly new to routers, as I've owned one for a little over a year. I am not new to using power tools and i have dabbled in woodworking for many years.

    Ive recently realized i missed my calling with this router, and have since purchased a second one. I will soon purchase a third as well. In particular, I'm interested in doing detailed inlays, including making my own multilayer letter stencils of various fonts. I watch these guys on YouTube do some of this stuff, and can't help but think i can do it as good or better. I've been right in many cases. I have always enjoyed drawing and i feel like i have the eyes and hands to master this art of inlay. I was blessed with the tools that can't be learned, i suppose.

    What i lack are the things that can be learned. Go with the grain or against? Use this finishing product or that one? Use this type of wood, or another? Should i do this part of the project first, or that part? Why this bit vs that one? And of course the "whys" that come along with all these questions, and many more.

    I look forward to learning from you all. I've been an unregistered lurker for a while now and have already learned a lot.
