Book Description

17 July 2007 Popular Woodworking

The first operator's manual for the router table

If you don't have a router table in your shop yet, you should! The router table opens up a whole new world of using the router that simply can't be done using it any other way. Operations such as edge profiling, making mouldings, cutting lock-miter joints, box joints, rabbets, grooves, splined miters, using templates, pin routing and more can be done using a router table. Using this book, you'll learn basic router-table knowledge, safety issues, setup fundamentals, feed direction and workpiece control. Also, you'll learn about specific operations unique to the router table and how to do them safely.

5.0 out of 5 stars better as a book 2 July 2012
By Orion
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would strongly recommend this book to any new user of router tables.

Unsurprising really as it is one of the few if not the only book specifically about router table use.

It has some very helpful information on using your router in a table!

I found the practical tips really helpful and it is clear that Bill Hylton has years of experience and as stated has tried all the techniques he describes and recommends.

The pictures and text are all very readable and I particularly liked the idea of his router table sled, similar to a table saw sled.

However I went cheap and bought this as a Kindle version, which I would not recommend. Although the text is fine on the Kindle I find the diagrams do not work so well and the loss of colour (unless you view it on your PC or smart phone) is a genuine loss. I am almost certainly going to have to buy it again as a real book as this is something you will want to refer to in your workshop and I do not think the Kindle does it justice. Ah well buy cheap, buy twice.

So in summary an excellent book but not ideal for Kindle!
