Counter It is the most comprehensive course ever on making joints with a router. The router is the woodworker's tool of choice for joinery, and this is the book of choice to take to the shop. Innumerable and spectacular photos and illustrations, plus invaluable knowledge straight from "The Router Lady," make each step of the process clear. You'll find a host of the newest fixtures and procedures that router expert Carol Reed has devised. Four sections cover the router and the art of designing and using jigs. Start with a mini course on the tool itself, plus bits, special holding systems, and techniques. It tells what features to consider when buying, which basics are usually included, and how to make your own improvements. Next are all the different woodworking joints--from rabbets and dadoes to mortise and tenons to the most special and rarely-used kinds--and how to execute them with the router. Third, discover the special techniques at which the router excels: make multiples of a shape with template routing join curving edges with nary a gap fix defects in the wood and decorate a plain project with inlay. Finally, practice your new skills on fantastic projects, such as a Totebox, Bookcase, Frame and Panel Door, and Small Table. If there is only one book on joinery in your workshop, this is it.
