  4. I am so thankful that people like you are active here on YouTube. I feel you are my teacher and are determined to teach me everything about woodworking from stcratch, thanks.

  5. Thanks for the freehand demo. Here is my trial with success. A trim router of 1.25 amp with round over bit takes several trims to get the desired shape. Multiple trims a guide, set distance from center of bit to the edge of router base, is a must for straight line. Hope this help small router application.

  7. Great video! Thank you for showing me how to use my router. On other tutorials though they mention making multiple passes with a 1/2 groundcover bit but it looks like you did it in one. When do you recommend, if you do, that I make multiple passes lowering the bit as I go? Thank you again!

  8. HI colin great tutorial and thank you for sharing,I would like to ask, when setting the bit in the router and you give it that little distance away from the collet how do you stop the bit from dropping down while you tighten up the collet.
