Last week was a varied and busy week in my workshop. I taught a wide rang of skills from basic planing and sawing through to the zenith of the furniture making craft chair making. There was also some heavy lifting involved.

In a previous video I described how to make a router table and fence this article shows how to make some holding and safety accessories. My table and fence do not have channeling to hold accessories , but this is not a problem if you use the system I use here.

Router skills project piece.

I’ve been working on developing a new course this week. On various of my courses we use a router for particular tasks, but I don’t have a course specifically devoted to routing techniques. Many students have said that they have a router but are not confident in using it, so I have decided to introduce a five day router skills course.

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.

Five day course. The router is the most useful power tool in the workshop but many people fail to get the most out of it, mainly because it can be a bit unpredictable. On this course you will learn to tame your router! Enabling you safely to cut joints, shape parts, create mouldings, inlay and much more. Mastering the router means you can tackle much more complex projects.
