Default Such a great hobby...

Not all of my cuts are straight, not all of my angles are square, but getting better. Got my first router about 2 months ago, but was intimidated. Got a project all lined up about a week ago, and I now wish I had this tool long ago. Now, I built myself a router table...not bad, my second one will be better but this one will last me a long time.

Any recommendations for books on jigs for the router. Mainly interested in jigs that can help me mill wood (thickness, edges, etc.), but also can see some sign making in the future (so ovals/round jigs, maybe scribing).

Anyway, thanks for your time.

Todd Welcome to the forum; there are many here who can assist you getting what you want to do with a router. Just a reminder; there is more that can be achieved when the router is held in the plunge mode, check out the material below.
