Wink Hi from central FL

Just wanted to say hello and introduce my self. I'm retired and enjoying every minute of it. Hobbies are: woodworking, recreational shooting (1-2 times a week), fishing, reading and international trave. No current woodworking projects but always on the prowel. I did make each the boys a (laminated mahongany and maple inlaid top with 1/2" maple walls gentlemans chest or treasure boxs for XMAS. They were all mitered joints and were 13"w x 10"d x 9"h with Woodcrafters brass hardware.
Grew up in Kokomo, IN, did my under graduate and post graduate work at Purdue University and worked in the defense industry until retirment. I've been married 43 yrs, have a son (38), daughter (42) and two grandsons (8 and 10 yrs and a new grandaughter still in in the hopper until sometime in March).
And there folks is my story. I look forward to sharing info and ideas with you.
Regards,
JimK

Jim Welcome to the forum; there are many here who can assist you getting what you want to do with a router. Just as 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.
