Week 1 Skill Builder – Router

For this first week of subtraction, our ‘skill builder’ exercise was to use the router. I wanted to try and make a simple channel through a block of wood, which I used the table router to cut it out.

I learned to adjust the height of the route bit at a smaller increment, because a few times I adjusted it too much where the bit was cutting out a lot of material and would smoke and go really slow. So, I found it smoother to cut deeper into the wood at a slower rate.
