Post Greetings from a newbie

Hello. I'm Julie, new to the site and relatively new to woodworking. Since moving to Georgia five years ago I have started making deck boxes, blanket chests, toy chests and I have done some inlay - all self-taught with the help of web sites and forums like this. I always learn something even if it's not what I'm looking for.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I've attached a couple photos of my most recent box.

Smile Thanks fromthe newbie

Hi All. Thanks for your nice comments and welcomes. I finally figured out how to post photos!

I am looking to buy a new plunge router since I need at least two to more efficiently do my designs. Any recommendations on brand? I currently use a Skill I bought many years ago and it is not a very good one.

Will you be using the routers by hand or mounted under a table top?

Plunge routers

Are really not the best for Router Table use. I have some Frued 1700FTs and a Porter Cable plunge that I like. They are 2 1/4HP. The 2 piece kits are great, cause you can use them either in the fixed base or as a plunge. Here's a link to plunge router reviews that you should check out:

BTW Some of us all end up with several routers, like 5 to 7, or so over the years, so go for it if it makes your work more efficient. They are not all that expensive when on sale. I have heard very good things about the Craftsman plunge kit...but I donno anything about it myself. My very first router was a Craftsman, 1970's, it made a lot of noise but worked OK. I gave it away when I got better ones.
This Milwaukee kit is on sale for $256.00 at Sears:

Lowes has some good deals:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
