Default Hello everybody!!!

Hey there,
I am glad to have found this forum. I do woodworking as a hobby, but have never used my router very much. I have installed a Jessum router lift in my table saw ext. & have a Dewalt router. I am looking forward to learning how to use these tools safely & aquire the needed skills for some cool projects. The first time I used my router table with a make shift fence the board shot across the room.At this point in time I think it would be save to say that I know just enough to be dangerous. Thanks again & I am looking forward to learning from the best.
