Ever marvelled at the accuracy of joinery and thought it was out of your grasp? Or perhaps you’ve wondered how to produce unique shapes with a crisp neat finish and be able to repeat them. Or maybe you are embarking on a domestic project and need a bit of handy know-how. Or just wanting to boost your DIY skills to take on a much broader range of projects. Well let us introduce you to the joys of routing!
The hand held router is the most versatile wood-processing machine in the modern workshop. It has revolutionised the speed, repeatability, efficiency and accuracy of shaping solid wood and sheet material. This hands-on 2 day course aims to bamboozle you with the sheer range and potential of router use. 2 days of noise and knowledge with a nifty set of shelves to come away with.
Assessing the functions and applications of different routers and router bits. Setting and executing a series of router-based tasks. Making, attaching and using a router table. Creating a shelving unit largely using routers.
