Welcome Router and Woodworking Enthusiasts,
First of all we would like to wish all our fellow woodworkers a happy and safe holiday season. In the spirit of the holiday season we have setup another holiday contest for all members to participate in. The contest was launched late November and has been running nicely since, we have received a lot of great entries from members, but we want more! It is not too late, you have until December 31 to post your entry and be eligible to win great prizes (read more below)! In addition to the contest, we will also be discussing a few discussions recently held on the community starting with a Mike who shows us how to build a vacuum bit guard then Harrysin shows us one of his recent wood turning projects and finally Tom5151 discusses a router table extension for better usability.
