There are various factors that can affect the quality of cut from a router, both hand held and in the router table. It often quite frustrating to find that whatever you do the cut is never as good as you would like. Hopefully this article will give a few pointers.

How to build a router table and fence

These two videos show how I went about making a router table using a piece of kitchen worktop and an aluminium insert from Axminster Power Tool Centre and then went on to make an accurate adjustable fence for the table.

If you do not have a router table I would recommend either buying or making one, your router will be so much more useful with one.
