I'm fairly novice. I would for sure love to grow my wood working skills. Which is why I'm here. I actually know a great deal about finishing, I work for Sherwin Williams and that used to be a big part of what I did was wood finishes. So yeah I can help you with that. Objectively mind you.

I also like playing guitar, driving my truck, trucks in general and outdoorsy stuff.

I'm interested right now in learning to do dovetails and joinery in general by hand so if anybody has any advice I am all ears!

Welcome….there are of course many choices when it comes to purchasing a router. In time most of us (I think) end up owning more than one router for various reason. Something to check out, I just saw an email where Rockler has a Porter Cable 690 series router for $99. This is a good price and in my opinion a good router for the money. My PC is an 890 series and I really like it.
