Routers 101: Make Your Own Cutting Board

From the simple task of adding profiles to woodworking projects, to cutting traditional joinery and following templates with great precision, Tobias Atkinson will introduce some of the many uses for routers, plunge routers and router tables in this hands-on workshop.  Routers are often regarded with a certain degree of wariness, but when handled correctly, routers can be used in a seemingly endless range of applications.  As Fine Woodworking magazine says, “The router is truly the Swiss Army Knife of woodworking tools” (2005).  Participants will leave with a custom made cutting board and the confidence to safely use routers in many applications.
