Thumbs up Good Deal!!!

That's great to hear. One of my primary objectives for getting into the routing are quite a few DIY projects I have been putting off because I didn't know how to do them with a Skilsaw, jigsaw and hammer. Router has opened up a whole world of possibilities. I am not terribly interested in the artsy-craftsy type woodworking but can really get into the home improvement aspects.
Oh, I hope no one takes offense about the "artsy-craftsy" descriptive I used. I have utmost respect for people who can inlay around dovetail joints and do such precision work. Just not in my line of interest and is a descriptive term I sorta picked up. Not intended to be derogatory in any way.
Am looking forward to the new forum.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

hi Mark,
i think its a good idea to have 2 separate forums for woodworking and improvement projects. i have a question, does the new forum start from now on for the separate categories?

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.

I guess it starts with existing projects, at least some existing projects.

i would think it starts with projects that have run their course . but what i do know is there should be a diy for doing upgrades to the home and the shop and a separate one for real traditional woodworking projects.

I agree, Levon.. Both are interesting but very different!

For those interested in renovations, there is an excellent forum "http://www.diychatroom.com/" specifically for that purpose. The Auzzies also have a very excellent woodworking forum. There are several professional fora available covering just about every topic imaginable and several that aren't. They are an equally helpful community like Router Forums.

I find re-inventing the wheel somewhat exasperating, especially since when we ask for a forum on safety and we're met with "thread closed!" I note the absence of a forum on the use of skis as well and most of the other methods of router use. It's as if the powers that be don't know the various methods of using a router and are still in the dark ages where the only use was fence and templates.
