Welcome to the forum, James.

The books I recommend are:

The Router Book by Pat Warner,

Woodworking with The Router by Bill Hylton.

They may be available at your local library.

A couple of DVD's are:
The Versatile Router - Pat Warner
Router Joinery - Gary Rogowski

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

I agree with James I really like Bill Hylton's book "woodworking with the router. It is full of good safety info but best of all ideas about how to do varied jigs, cuts, etc. It's available from Amazon.

James if you haven't picked any books yet I personally like watching Paul Sellers work. He has videos on you tube and video classes on his you tube site. He has a blog on Facebook There are a lot of good books at every store you can find "Woodcraft", Rockler" to name a couple of vendors. I can get great books from my local library also. You be surprised how much is out there if you just lokk.

Go to the "Community Search" up above this post and type in your question. There is a huge amount of information about building your own table. You can also click on the Router Forums.com logo above that and go to the home page and click on the subject "Table mounted routing".

Welcome to the forum.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
