7 Steps to Routing
Router Woodworking is more than just Routers. It is about routing, drilling, metrology, and the accessories to expedite their (routers) application. Why drilling, why metrology (measuring)? Because routing demands it.
Routers go no where without jigs and fixtures. Jigs and fixtures are screwed together. And if you can't drill or measure, you can't make jigs. Moreover, if you can't drill accurately your jig's components will not rest in peace. Given facility at the drill press, machines screws alone can position your components to .002" on a worthy substrate. A worthy pursuit, indeed.
In order to make the accessories displayed here I had to design & make the fixturing & tooling to do so. As a result, I have facility in plastic, aluminum, & wood, the primary materials for jigs, fixtures & accessories. Should the time & resouces avail themselves, I'll show you how I do it, lessons one-on-one. I do this year round in Escondido, California, where it never rains nor snows.
My product and information inventories are expressly designed to simplify and expedite your shop studies. I design, test, use, and make everything (solo) on this website; none of the work is farmed out. As such, I'm in a constant feedback loop. As I design, produce, and streamline my fixturing, I get the insight to do the same to outgoing product.
