Bob, I like all books on routing, and anything on jigs and fixtures (regardless of what type of machinery [table saw, bandsaw, drill press, router, etc])
I guess my favorite would be "Router Projects and Jigs" by Bob and Rick Rosendahl. Hey Mark, do I get POINTS for saying that? LOL
I found the New Router Handbook by the late Patrick Speilman very informative and inspiring during my early routing days. I was given the routing bug by Bob and Rick after seeing a couple of episodes, but then moved to an area that they weren't available. The router handbook shows you the simplicity and potential of router work.
Bob N, I have found two nice books at my public library.
501 Best Shop Tips For Woodworkers = Robert Settich
complete book of tips, tricks & techniques = Popular Woodworking
Both books hit on most equipment used in a woodshop. Table saws, planers, jointers, jigsaws, bandsaws, and ROUTERS. Some safety tips too. Nice reading for a beginner like me.
