RouterCraft II

This class is for the student who probably owns and has already used the router for some basic functions as covered in RC I.  In this class, students will be introduced to more advanced uses of the router such as dovetailing, raised panel doors, mortising, and inlay methods.  Numerous tips will offer the student several ways to save money.  Of particular emphasis in this class is the router table.  Every aspect of tables from “building your own” to useful ideas for commercial product improvement will be included.  Here we discuss fences (for example: how to convert an Incra ultra system to a full router fence- note: the link shown here is from Popular Woodworking magazine and describes a fixture for the table saw.  We disagree with this project for its intended purpose but the plans are excellent for adapting the Incra fence to a full router table fence which we cover in this class) and alternative methods for raising panels.   We’ll also cover that pesky Lock Miter bit (see left).  Some students  may use the instructor's routers during certain demonstrations but this is not a hands on class.
