RTB301K21 Router III: Bases and Techniques

November, 13 - November, 14 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Router III with Andy Glantz and John Rivard

The more you learn about your router, the more you can do with it.

Our Router III class builds on the principles and techniques taught in Router I and II as we delve into using base plates and matching patterns to further expand the capabilities of this versatile tool.

Base plates are quick to make and will enable you to use your router to easily cut things like circles of varying sizes rabbets for joinery, as well as creating curves and inlays. While it is possible to purchase some base plates, making your own is fast, affordable, and allows you have total control.

In this great weekend class, we will use our routers to create bases for cutting circles and rabbets. We will also learn how to create matching forms that will enable you to use the router for complex curves and inlays.

Each student will build two new router bases plus a set of templates for creating curves and inlays.

Instructors Andy Glantz and John Rivard are professional furniture makers who use and appreciate the versatility and adaptability of this tool. They will explain the concepts behind router bases as well as guiding you through making and using these helpful tools.

Tools and materials: Students are encouraged to bring their own router and bits, or are welcome to use school tools if preferred. All other materials will be provided.

Prerequisite: Router I and II or equivalent.
