Router Basics – Day 2

We made our way back up to Woodcraft, Heather fighting way more traffic that I did, to finish our kleenex boxes and the rest of the class. We finished the last cuts on the router and then glued and clamped our boxes.┬áSince the glue took about an hour to dry, we did a bunch of technical discussion about different types of routers, the baseplates, bushings, motors, tables, etc. There was a lot of information that we didn’t know, and if we hadn’t taken the class we probably would have made a bad purchase.

Our boxes are now glued and sanded, but not yet finished. We’ll do that later on, probably some Danish Oil, that should look nice on the oak. And then we’re going to go shopping…
