It has been some time since made my last post to the forum. I must confess that I am still introducing new Routing Techniques with the introduction of how Template Guides has enabled me to produce a greater number of interesting projects with my router. I have submitted a number of videos on you tube to demonstrate what can be achieved with the Router OUT of the TABLE mode. I am well aware that some projects should be completed in the Table mode or making a simple Jig to perform the same process, this jig has been demonstrated on one or two of my videos. there are a great number of processes that cannot be completed on the table mode IMHO.
Starting with simple project such as a rectangular picture frame, which can be produced using the table mode but can be produced with greater safety awareness and the jig and template are available for future projects.
I would be very interested if there are any others who may be using template guides to complete a project from start to finish.
Just as a matter of interest I taught people who are totally blind to use the router at the association for the blind as one of my teaching years. I’ll try and post some pics of what they completed. Note: I was responsible in producing the Templates

Yes, Tom, that’s a very useful accessory for routing for me It’s a pretty common item that I use frequently but someone new to routing your video can be very helpful. I’ll book mark it and share it with my students.
Thanks for sharing.
