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.

How to build a router table and fence

Posted by on Jul 26, 2013 in Video | No Comments

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.

JPEG drawings of the table and fence are supplied. Click here to download a sketchup drawing of the table and fence.

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.
