Default One For The Front Door

Wife wanted one for the front door. Hopefully last one with this 11.4 pound B&D Router.

Nice work on the thin and extended lines, especially so with a heavy router, hand held. I think its time for you to invest in a trim router so you can do more of this kind of work. You're obviously good at it. I have a Colt but another brand comes with a clear plastic base so it will work more easily with signs and sign templates.

Thanks Tom. Just so happens I finally ordered my Dewalt DWP611 at 2:30 this morning along with a new base plate for it. Also paid for speedy shipping. Should be here tomorrow or the 3rd. I can hardly wait.

Quite a few of us have the 611 combo package and I haven't seen anyone say anything bad about it yet. I think you'll like it, especially for small work like that. I used mine to do some light trimming about head high and it was way nicer to use it than one of my bigger ones.

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.
