New to woodworking getting my shop in order. have a scroll saw 3 routers, table saw drill press plainer and various hand tools. Been making small things like napkin olders, paper plate holders, clocks, wall plaques, etc What to get a little better with a router, I understand that they can do more than just spin around really fast.
any help or advice greatly appreciated
Welcome carl.r.jarrat to the Routerforums you won't believe what you can do with a router on projects. Do you get Bob and Ricks router program where you live. Since I saw them I thought routers were just for edging and sign making. It's just endless what you could do with just one tool. And I learned and got some really good advice from here lots of good members and help here.
Carl, welcome to the forums. Glad to have you. Other than a saw of some kind, a router is all you need. Preferably two. One in a table and one portable. It is amazing what all a router can do. On this forum, all you have to do is ask. There are no dumb questions. Nice people here to help. Again, welcome.
Welcome aboard. While I'm no expert -- I'm finding new ways to use my routers almost on a daily basis. Like your list of items you've been making, but I'm not sure how you make a paper plate holder. Only one's I have seen were all made of a thin wicker like material. Can you expand on that?
