Wood Router Video
A router is like a specialized drill with interchangeable bits for cutting and shaping wood. The various bits allow grooves to be cut and all sorts of fancy cuts to dress up or decorate a plain piece of wood.
The router has a depth adjustment for the bits. Most are adjustable for 1/16 to 3/4 inch deep cuts.
Before changing the router bits, be sure to unplug the electrical power cord from the power source. Router bits are extremely sharp so they can cut the wood. Be careful when handling and changing these bits.
Wood routers are great for dressing up the edges of wood of most projects. There are 20 - 30 different types of bit for making various shaped cuts. And they are available in a wide variety of diameters. Just use your imagination on how you can put a router to use on your next woodworking project.
