Outstanding book for the novice, expert, and every where in between! I actually bought 2. 1 softcover for the shop that I don't mind dog earring, making notes, or having it get dirty and 1 hardcover for the library in the house to stay clean just for reading. This is the best book I've come across that was suggested by a router class instructor, who brought his to class. The photos are well done and the writing is a style that doesn't assume pre knowledge of the subject. It includes many designs for do it yourself jigs and techniques for making your work stand out like a pro. This is a book you will read cover to cover and then refer to time and time again! Great bargain!
Everyone who is not already a highly experienced pro with the router will find something in it to make their work easier and more accurate, their projects more professional looking.I've had this book for several months. I didn't read it cover to cover, I read the first three chapters, looked at the next three (I already had a router table) and then skipped to different chapters that had direct answers - jigs and techniques - for the project at hand. Since then, every so often I pick up the book again and look through the book, stopping to read another section. Every time I do, I find another technique or jig to help with what I'm doing. This is a great, simply great reference book for working with the router.Before I bought it, I checked a copy of an older edition out of the library. It was definitely helpful, but the black and white pictures were none too clear. The later editions have been revised and improved with sharp, high resolution color pictures and drawings that are much more helpful. Get the later edition. If you feel you must choose between this book and Hylton's other router book Router Magic: Jigs, Tips and Tricks to Unleash your Router's Full Potential, get this one first, and start saving for that one. Some, but not all, of what's in the Magic book is in this book.
Ton of tips and tricks...one of my favorite woodworking authors. I'm a beginner...and I've purchased 30+ books to get up to speed as quickly as possible. This is one of the best. I ended up buying all of his router books.
Excellent book. Well written. Instructions for choice and use of bits, making a router table and safely using a router both handheld and in a table. My only criticism is that some terms are used that as an inexperienced user I did not know. Google helps with that.
Still one of the best books out there. My local library has a great selection of Router books available, but I kept coming back to this one. Checked it out so many times I decided I should just go ahead and buy it.
Excellent book - all the other reviews are correct. This book is the bible for everything you'll ever do with a router. Definitely a book I will use as a resource for many years to come.
This book has the best and most detailed explanations of the functioning and usage of a router that I have found after long searching.
It is a very good book and well put together for the beginner and the pro alikeEveryone gets something out of it it is definitely a book a woodworker would want to have in there collection.
