Default New to woodworking

Hi there! I just purchased my first router, it is a fixed and plunge base. I also purchased a router table and some bits. I have never used a router before. Any suggestions for a rookie?

Welcome to the forum! When you get a minute go ahead and complete your profile with first name and location. We like first names and having your location helps us to help you.

What sort of woodworking do you like to do? Got any projects going on now? You can post photos if they're on your computer, just no 3rd part hosting links until you have over 10 posts.

Welcome to the forum - when you get a chance, please update your profile with at least a first name, otherwise folks will start calling you "momma".

I'm sure Stick will be around with a boatload of docs for you to read, but until then, since you're new to routing I'd say, never do anything that you're not comfortable with and stay safe.

Some folks call me Vince - other folks call me...........

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....
