Wood Routers can be intimidating, but this foundations class will give you the knowledge and confidence to safely explore these powerhouse tools. Learn how to differentiate the assorted types of routers (Fixed, Plunge, Handheld or Table-Mounted, etc.) and tooling (the bits) in order to select the right one for your project.
Our instructor will review basic tool components and assembly, and demonstrate set-up and safe operation. Participants will have a chance to get some hands-on experience with assembly and using a router for a variety of common tasks including edge treatments, jointing, pattern routing and more!
This is a beginners level class - No prior experience needed!
*Please note, this is an introductory course and will not go into heavy project detail. It is designed to offer a comprehensive overview of common router uses (edge treatment, jointing, trim, pattern routing, dado, mortise & tenon, match or coped joints, panel raising/flattening and dish carving), router safety, and the tools themselves.
The Minnesota Tool Library is a cooperative, volunteer-driven nonprofit which shares tools, trade skills and workshop space. Our mission is to empower each other, reduce waste, and improve communities through sharing.
