hi! have been woodworking for some 10 years now; am retired but find i am busier than ever! I make and sometimes sell various types of furniture, ranging from adirondack chairs to quilt stands via gatelegged tables plus a lot of other stuff in betweenlike roll top bread boxes.

I use my router table quite a lot but hardly ever use a router freehand.just have not found a need for it yet and I am probably scared to try!!!!!

am looking forward to picking up some tips from my fellow routers out there.

Hello Peter! Welcome to Router Forums. That is the case for myself as well. Most of the routing i do can be done in the table Enjoy the forum, and take a look at the galleries. Can you also tell us where you are from. And post it on your profile as well. I find that i need all the information to help folks, and check back.
