Advanced Tool Class - Router and Router Table 

Instructor - Chip Webster

Note: Completion of Intro to the Guild and Shop Certification is a prerequisite.   

This class is about safe use of router and router table and is designed to help you with Guild Shop 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 you were in the process of getting your shop card before COVID shut the shop down, and this is the last class that you need to get your shop card, please contact our registrar, Julie, at registrar@guildoforegonwoodworkers.org

Please contact Doug Drake at doug.drake@guildoforegonwoodworkers.org with questions.
