New to forum. Just found it. I have had a shopsmith since 1980 and as part of my woodworking shop I bought a Craftsman router. I was on active duty and unable to move my tools to Hawaii and Japan, so no woodworking for many years. I just started to do some wood projects for Christmas presents this year - A 20 bottle wine rack made out of red oak and an aircraft carrier (complete with jets, helicopters and PT boats) for my 5 year old grandson. Both were a big hit.
Best part is that I forgot how much I enjoyed working with wood. The bad part is that I forgot much of my woodworking skills. When I did the wine rack I wanted to use the router that I just relocated under my work bench but was unsure of what I was doing. The project was on a tight timeline - so I skipped the routing I wanted to do.
Now it is after Christmas, no more deadlines - so I am going back to re-learning my wood working skills which includes - using my router.
So, here I am!
