Router and Router Table Skills

Instructor - Bill Hamiltoin

Note: Completion of the Safety & Orientation (S&O) meeting is required before taking this class; also known as the completing the White Card requirement.

This class is designed to help you with Green Card Certification on these machines.

The router is one of the most versatile tools in the shop. It is commonly used to do routine cutting of slots with a straight bit, but has great flexibility in edge profiling and in use with jigs. The router is a simple motor 1, 2 ¼ or 3 ½ horsepower with a changeable collet that can hold thousands of bit styles. It can be mounted in a table for exquisite control or hand held when the project is too large to get onto the table.

If you are not confident in your mastery of this machine, then this is the class for you. We will discuss best practice for each operation, you will see it demonstrated, and then you will have the opportunity to perform the procedure yourself, hands on. By the end of the class, you should feel comfortable that you can operate these machines safely. Materials will be provided.


A Shop Attendant needs to be an intermediate woodworker and is expected to work at least one shift a month, plus attend the monthly SA meeting.

If a member needs a refresher on a certain group of machines, they can sit in on a class for free, provided they have previously taken the class.
