Making Perfect Edges

It can be difficult to cut a clean and smooth edge on a tiny piece of wood, but each time a router can create a perfectly finished edge. Routers DRT50ZX4 are used on both straight and curved edges to make even and level cuts and can replicate those cuts on multiple pieces of wood.

Re-Creating Patterns

Routers can be used to cut patterns, grooves, and designs across multiple pieces of wood.

Recessing Door Hinges

Routers can be used with a jig to cut space for recessed door hinges or lock faceplates. Recessed hardware yields a more finished appearance and smoother operation.

Make a Cutting Board

You can quickly make a cutting board with a rectangular piece of wood. Start by rounding the edges of the board. Finish the piece by hollowing out a groove one or two inches from the edge of the board, all the way around.

Bevel a Frame

You can create a picture frame with a beveled edge out of pieces of wood and a router. Use your router to shape the outside and inside edges of the frame.

Safety Tips

  • Always Wear Eye and Ear Protection
  • Unplug your router every time you change the bit, and when you’re done, double-check that the switch is off before plugging it back in.
  • It makes perfect sense to keep your hands clear of the bit, but the cord is easily forgotten during operation. Know where your cord is at all times.
  • Just make sure you set up the router correctly by doing a test break. Don’t gamble to ruin a finished piece with an easily avoidable mistake.
  • If the bit is in contact with the work, it will either throw the work, or the router will race right out of your hands.
