Hi all.

I'm a beginning "router-er" and am looking for a good, easy-to-read book on using routers to make simple furniture. Some of the ones I've seen are all about intricate-looking jigs that are beyond my ability to make.

Anybody got a good one they recommend?

Is there much detailed on the use of the template guides published in the book as I consider the use of the guides adds greater safety awareness when using the router

Hi, Toolfreak:
Welcome to the forum. I would also reccomend the book "woodworking with the Route" by Bill Hylton and Fred Matlack. Additionally, I would reccomend the book
"Router Jigs & Techniques" by Patrick Spielman.
