Welcome aboard. And good to know you will start on scrap, always a good idea. To really get your best out of your router you'll probably want a router table. And I am a great fan of making your own, rather than buying. When you buy, what you're getting is someone else's idea of what you need. When you build, then you get what you actually need - and if it's not quite right, change it or make another table, they don't cost much. I'm on about my 4th or 5th homemade router table. Probably got about $5 or so in it, and it does just what I want/need. If my wants/needs change, then will amend this one, or make a new one. Just remember, it ain't rocket science.
