This week, the prize is Hendrik’s eighth DVD course called “Using Your Router and Router Table Safely”. It is almost 8 1/2 hours long and focuses on router and router table features as well as router safety rules. It also covers a large number of techniques such as edge treatments, dados, rabbets, plunge cuts and even climb cutting. A long and detailed bonus section covers template routing, both with a hand-held router and on the router table. You can read more about this 4-DVD set here: http://passionforwood.com/woodworking/dvds-router.htm. It is valued at Cdn. $89.95 + taxes and shipping.
To enter to win this contest, just post a comment giving your answer to this question: “In your opinion, is a router more dangerous when used in your hands or used in a router table, and why?” Post a comment before (insert contest deadline here) and Hendrik will choose his favourite answer. Then we’ll let you know how to claim your prize. Hendrik will ship it directly to your home at no cost to you.
