Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)
Routers and Router Tables
You’re thinking about getting a router—is it worth the investment? What type should you get? What else will you need? What are the techniques involved? How can you put a router to use? What about a router table? All good questions and all talked about in this book.
Of course, most (if not all) of the information can be found online, but you may not know the questions to ask. The book provides all of the tips in one place and giving you pre-purchase information that you will be grateful for later.
It also provides tips and strategies to use the tool properly and safely as well as to prevent problems such as tear-out. All good information to know before you start.
Beyond the “how to” tips the book also contains plans! There is the $100 router table, the mobile table, a lift, fences, jigs, and more. There are 13 build-it plans in total.
There is also an entire section on joinery and how to use the router for stiles and rales, loose tenons, and dovetails, to name a few.
Overall, it is an impressive book, bringing all the router information into one handy location.
