Maintain control and consistency when routing.

posted 6/2/2015 in Kreg Tool Tips: Routing by Kreg Tool Company

When routing an edge profile, you need to keep the router bit firmly against the wood to maintain control of the cut and to ensure that the profile is consistent. With a handheld router, the weight of the router and the strength of your arms make this fairly easy.

When routing on a table, though, holding the workpiece against the bit can be more of a challenge. To help keep the workpiece in place, use a featherboard, or even two, to help hold your workpiece against the fence and the table as you rout.
