Hi I'm David
I have just started to get back into woodworking, have done loft conversion with a large dormer made of wood and this has got me interested in woodwork again.
I want to make small pieces of furniture.
I bought a ryobi 2100 router but this had to go back because of a fault.
They have taken a long time so they are now sending me an Aeg version of this router.
I also have a ryobi router table and I want to use these to make small dorrs etc.
Any tips would be much appreaciated

Hi David, Here a link to some dvd's you could get that have some good techniques. & a link to Woodworking Online that has some podcast you could watch. There is a pdf link in the tools & woodworking section of the forum near the top marked as a sticky. Have fun.

David; 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.

Thanks guys
I am looking at some of the video's on you tube, quite interesting what you can do with a few accesorries.
I have received my new AEG which is a great tool, but I think I may need to buy a smaller one as well, as the AEG is to big for a dovetail jig.

thanks again
David

Welcome to the forum David, the Ryobi 2100 is a very nice tool and as a matter of interest sells here in Australia for $$179.00, which for a 1/2" variable speed router is very good value for money, similar spec. routers sell here for between $400.00 and $650.00 and well above this for the esoteric brands. Any time you have a question, it's only a matter of posting it to receive a variety of useful answers.
