Hi
Hoping to learn as much as I can on routers as I am completely new to wood working. It looks like there are so many possibilities and this must be the place to learn.

Thanks!

Hi Ken, glad you decided to join the fun. Be sure to look over Stick's pdf collection, it is better than any text. You will find a lot of information on youtube, although a few posters there are a little iffy on their safety measures.

Attached is a pdf of the 18 plus things that really helped me accelerate my learning curve. It's kind of long, but has pictures. Don't expect to tool up with everything right off the bat, my shop took about 12years to set up and happened during my peak earning years. But it might save you some mistakes, for example the one tool I could have done without was the compound sliding miter saw. Put the money toward a really nice table saw, it is the heart of any shop and you can do a LOT with a good table saw.

Get youself a really good mask right away because you don't want to be inhaling any of the fine sawdust. Some woods are carcinogenic, and the ultra fine particles can't be expelled from the lungs.

Here's the pdf.
