It seems every project I plan requires at least one bit I don't have. I started with a boxed set of 1/4 inch shank bits my now ex-wife bought for me, then watching the Router Workshop I learned the value of the flush trim bit and one of those was my first addition. Then I bought a router with 1/2 inch collet, and things exploded from there!
The boxed set included round overs, coves, straight, a dovetail and a panel pilot bit. I still have not figured out what the panel pilot bit is for.

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."

- Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
