Please enter a quantity.


The router is an incredibly powerful and versatile tool; it can be used to cut, shape, trim, and inlay simple and complex patterns. This class will demonstrate to students the function and safe use of the router. We will discuss the different types of routers and which applications are appropriate for the router, trim router, and router table. Our instructors will demonstrate several techniques, including the use of basic jigs and templates. Students should bring their own router to class to better understand how to use their tool. If you don’t have a router, you can rent one from the shop for $25. Just be sure to add the Tool Rental to your cart before checkout.
