    I have just started routing. I am not even sure what to ask. I have burned wood. Had parts slung across the room. Burned up a bit. And made a few nice things. Looking for tips from others, both new and experienced. I can see where this could be one of the most useful tools in a shop. Look...

Band saw, drill press, joiner, etc. What concerns me is the seller is keeping his table saw and selling the rest. Does anyone have experience or...

  5. Starting Off
    Long story short, I've pretty much taken over the garage to be my workshop. I get some grief from my fiance about it, but it's always been a dream of mine to have a proper shop where I could do my woodworking and maybe work on the motorcycles in the winter. So, I'm needing to build a few...

    New to this forum but not new to woodworking. New to router work though. Am a little hesitant on learning how to use the thing, but am looking forward to it though. I bought a used Craftsman 1-1/2 hp model 315.17431 today for about $50. It looks like a nice starter router, dust bag included...

    Hi everybody, Nice to join such a community of router addicts! I live in Belgium and am a rather new router user. Use one for a few months only. And I'm not much older in woodworking either... But even if I'm just another beginner, I really want to improve my capacity to realise some home...
  11. Show N' Tell
    Hi, I am a newbie and have just started getting excited about my work. I looked at the last sign or should I say the 2nd sign I am beginning to feel good about. I was thinking that I should have taken pictures of my progress to look back at or to give others something to laugh about and so...
  12. General Routing
    I thought I'd share some information on a "Low-Cost" set of router bits that is a good starter kit for the beginner or great for making your prototype before you purchase the more costly router bit. I purchased the set, "Neiko 80-Piece Premium-Grade" from for $89.99. If I would have...
  13. CNC Routing
    Alright, this is kind of a weird post, but bear with me. I know nothing about woodworking. And on top of that I don't know anyone who knows anything about woodworking. But I'm very interested in it, and I want to learn, well, something. I'm not mechanically challenged or anything, I'm just new...
