Routing


I have just purchased a Router (a fairly good one) and have two projects I want to start which would require the use of the Router. Can anyone suggest a decent book that would teach me the Routing basics and perhaps some slightly more advanced techniques. Thanks in advance for any help.

Also subcribe to the newsgroup (rec.woodworking) this is an american based newsgroup but one where you will find a mine of guidance on routing,ask them to guide you to some basic routing sites.

are quite good for ideas and there is a readers digest one, "woodworking with a router", IIRC - that is pretty good.
Try reserving and getting them from the local library and just photocopying the few pages that you want to keep for reference - mostly ideas for jigs. The rest is pretty much common sense and you only need to read it once.
Jigs are, IMHO, the key - including a router table. A router will chew its way through most things, very quickly, if it and the workpiece aren't kept very much under control and limited in their degrees of freedom.
You will probably want to look at getting a dovetail jig for it. Whilst hand-cut joints are the most satisfying, they don't quite compare for speed with a router and a jig..

Try your local library. Mine has at least 2 or 3 books on routing and woodworking power tools which never seem to be borrowed by anyone but me. That way you can find an author whose style you like or makes things more easily understandable. Speaking as a routing numpty, someone who explains things well is important to me.
