Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Routers are loud and create a lot of messy woodchips, but when used with the proper accessories they can perform the work of several more expensive and sophisticated tools. The author of many excellent woodworking titles, Peters (Jointers and Planers) offers advice to both beginners and pros. Readers are first told what to look for when selecting a router-the numerous types are outlined in table format-and then given an overview of the huge variety of bits and accessories. Instructions are provided for hand-held and table-mounted routing operations, as well as tool maintenance, troubleshooting, and the creation and use of numerous shop-made jigs and fixtures; four projects (a clock, box, picture frame, and trivet) illustrate important techniques. Router books are published so frequently that libraries hardly need all of them, but this is one of the best to date. The clear color photos and illustrations set the book apart and provide an excellent supplement to the informative text, and safety is stressed throughout. An essential purchase.
