Susan 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, with the aid of template guides. Check out the material below.

Hi Tom, Thanks for the info. I did try elevating the bit off the work and that made a lot of difference in control. Will continue to practice and made more firewood from perfectly fine pine.

Good morning, Deb. Thank you for your welcome and I LOVE the latin recipe for firewood, as I make a lot of it, lately. My clamp savvy is getting better but that's where most of my errors come from. Merrily whirring away and then the finished piece looks like I've been drinking while routing and texting, driving with scalding coffee in my lap and having two big dogs challenging the world from the back seat. It's THAT bad.. Oh, well , there's two sides to every board....

Hope to talk to you again soon, Susan

Hi Susan,

Welcome. I read something about you clamping your work. I have been using mats on my table to place the work on and it will keep it from sliding. Might be something to look into. A rubber mat will work as will many other types. Certain suppliers sell similar products. It keeps from having to move clamps or the error of bumping into one while trying to maintain a line.
