Notes on routers

The router is a motorized tool that can be equipped with a wide variety of cutters, or bits, making it extremely versatile.Router bits exist for a panoply of woodworking projects, including making mouldings or casings, carving grooves (e.g.for inserting drawer bottoms or cabinet door panels), professionally finishing the edges of pieces of stock (boards, shelves, tables), planing surfaces and even making dovetail joints.

Router bits are often sold in sets, usually with illustrations of the shapes or patterns that they can cut.

Depending on the model of router and type of work involved, the user can either move the router along the fixed material (e.g. to follow curves) or move the material itself along a fixed router table (e.g.to carve grooves).A number of routers are designed to be used either way and can be fastened upside down under a router table.
