Joinery on the Router Table

May 23, 2020 - May 27, 2020 $100 – $130

Router Essentials for Every Woodworker

This is the perfect time to work on your craft! And you can do it from the comfort of your workshop!

Fixed routers and plunge routers add a LOT to the workshop, but they can be intimidating to use.

With the amazingly diverse availability of router bit profiles, there are many different things you can do on a router table; from edge profiling to joinery. Because of the high rpm of a router motor, the cut quality is great, typically requiring very little sanding, and your instructor, Kate Swann,  will show you many important tips and fundamentals to help you to get the most out of your routers and you get hands-on experience.

No matter if you are a beginner or are familiar with the router, this is a great class to hone your skills.

Learn along with other woodworkers as you participate in this live video conference class taught by Kate Swann and chat with your classmates from around the nation and world in real-time

There is a lot of interaction, and you’ll get to watch and engage with Kate as she leads you through the process and techniques of using fixed table routers to accomplish a wide array of joinery.  It’s as close as you can get to sitting in the workshop with her:)

The class is split into manageable sections of approximately two hours online followed by work periods where you will work in your own workshop. 

Kate will walk you through the process of :

      • Which router to buy and how to maintain it
      • What router bits to invest in
      • Techniques such as how to cut:
        • dadoes
        • rabbets
        • lap joints
        • mortises & tenon


You will get handouts, links, and if you need it materials.  We’ve also provided a link below for tool purchases if you need them.

The class is beginner level.

You’ll also be invited to join our private Facebook group where you can chat, post questions, and get advice outside of class hours.  Come and join the quarantine team!

Finally, will we record each day, so that you can refer back to it as you work through your assigned tasks and homework.

Sign-ups are limited  – We want each of you to have a fabulous experience!
