Take a look inside almost anyone’s shop and you’ll see the regular assortment of power tools. You’ll see a table saw and a band saw, and you may stub your toe on a jointer and planer. Those machines are most useful at the beginning of a project, but as you get into the project, there is a tool that is used more often than those tools combined. At least it’s that way in my shop. That tool is a router – I’m talking one with a pigtail.
There is so much you can do using routers. This one tool – with router bits, guide bushings, templates and patterns – can change your woodworking for the better. That’s why we bundled the best DVDs, articles, books and jigs into the Woodworker’s Ultimate Router Value Pack.
Included in this collection of everything router is two DVDs (one on router basics and a second, “Router Joinery & Techniques,” that teaches how to get more out of your router – I’m partial to the second DVD as it has my name attached); two books, both written by Bill Hylton that are full of information and are great additions to any woodworking library; and numerous articles, downloads and PDFs.
