Default Introducing myself to Router Forums

I am 76 years of age and I am a retired aircraft engineer, I have never used a router! because when I was not working on aircraft, I was oil painting landscapes and seascapes (which I still do) I collect my router (A Scheppach hf-50-Bench top Router, 240v 1500w) in three weeks time. The reason for all this is that I want to make all the frames for my paintings and I also want to make the mouldings, so I can honestly say that everything that I produce is ALL MY OWN WORK! But before this happens I will have to knuckle down and learn from the experts like your good selves:

Hi Brian and welcome to the forum. I've made a few frames mostly because the ones my wife liked were too expensive to buy($25/ft of molding). Looking at them I realized that most were made from a variety of common curves and could be made in numerous passes with router bits. It will be helpful to mount your router horizontally or overhead, possibly on skis.Both can be researched on this forum. The problem with trying to make frames on a router table is that you cut away the wood that the piece needs to sit on for stability. You can do some by leaving 1/8" on either side untouched and then rip those parts off later on a saw but the other mounts will offer more opportunities.

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.
