Default Purchased my 1st Router Yesterday!

Hello All,

I am excited to say that I posted my 1st Router yesterday. It is a Ridgid R29302
combo pack kit. I purchased this to get into wood working, I am 28 now and my last real experience with wood working was in high school.

I recently purchased a home and now have a basement that I am looking forward to building a Wood Working area and collection of tools.My 1st project is my basement stairs. I ripped out the risers and treads, went to Home Depot and had 2x8's and 2x10's cut to 42" width. I am hoping to use my router to put a rounded finish on the front of the steps. Looking forward to learning more about wood working here!

Good luck with your stair project and have fun with your new router!!

Take a little advice from Jerry,be safe and from me, routers are very loud remember to wear ear plugs or head phone type protectors.
