Smile new guy - old wood worker

I've been doing wood working for over 40 years. While in the Army I used the Wood Craft Shops that most posts had. That was a great way to learn since the emphasis was on safety, and a knowledgable staff was always available.

I've used a Craftsman router for years for little projects. What a difference to use a Porter-Cable or Bosch - but the Craftsman did things I needed it to do.

I'm looking forward to seeing what folks on this forum do, and sharing questions, and answers.

I have been looking at router tables, and have decided to build my own built into a rollaround work bench I plan.
