Welcome, Bret! We are all glad you have joined-up and hope to have helpful exchanges of info with you. If you think something is risky, please write and ask. This group with literally thousands of members has experience with all types of woodworking chores. The router, as I am sure you know by now; is a fantastic tool when in the hands of a skilled operator. The router (due to its inherently high RPM) is also one of the best ways for an operator to perform do-it-yourself amputations. Don't become one of the statistics! Be safe and have fun doing it. Every person, regardless of experience learns from this forum!
