  1. Direction of travel is also important. Go one direction and the rotation of bit against wood tries to force router to push away from stock. Other direction and router fence is pulled more tightly to stock (better).

  2. So that's what my router fence is for! Ha ha…. Should be helpful to many people who thought they had to use a router table, which they might not have.

  3. you have mark for l to r But how do you sure That when you move you are not moving Up or down by Mistake ?

  4. Using Woody Hyezmar’s Woodworking Bible, my brother is finally building and even selling some of his woodworking projects. Google him up

  5. why mark you start and stop points, and not use a start and stop blocks on the right and left side of the router edge, that way you can't overshoot your mark and you can focus more on the routers rocking also you could use a block between the legs to give a bridge over the gap and more support with the extra distance.

  6. Great tip on marking the router edge to see instead of the mortise edge im a newbie with all this but ill use that tip.Thanks
