Default Hello Router Forums

Good Morning All,

I am a complete NEWBY when it comes to woodworking. Some would of thought that since my father was the manager of a lumber yard for many years when I was very young that I would be a natural. Not so.

I have owned a router for about 10 years but have not even used it. I recently bought a table top router and table and am just getting started. My first project is a sign for my first grandchild. That is a work in progress but I am very proud of how it turnedout.

My second project is a urn for my fathers ashes. It is nothing fancy, in fact it is very very basic. I am hopeing that by connecting with all you folks on here that I will be able to pick up some valuable lessons.

I saw on here a post from one of you folks saying that if I had all my fingers then I was doing well. Funny that I read that as while doing my last project my saw caught a piece of wood and smashed my finger. I thought for sure I had taken the tip off, but thankfully it was just smashed. A VALUABLE lesson learned there.

Have a great day everyone.
