      I am an intermediate skill level woodworker/do it yourselfer
      and am wondering about what features to look for in a router
      Should my first router be a basic router or a plunge router.
      What bit sizes should it accept? What about other features.
      I plan on using it for creating new faces for my kitchen cabinents,
      mouldings, and I also have an interest in creating electric basses.
      If any one has any tips or comments please drop me an email.

      I have two routers. One mounted in a router table that I find extremely handy for building furniture. And a second one that I use mainly for large edging projects or with a jig to make mortices for such things as hinges.
      I think you are better off sta

      ying with one of the smaller routers initially and gain some experience with the tool. Making raised panels with a router can be areal dangerous proposition and is probably best left to either the shaper or even the table saw. A plunge router maight be a

      nice compromise if you do a lot of morticing though.
