For versatility, you can't beat a router. Decorative edging, joinery, trimming, and much more fall within the router's capability.
With just a router, a straight bit, and a router trammel, you easily can form large, perfectly circular parts such as this project's tabletop.
Let's start with the basics.
My shopmade dogs—made with 3⁄4" dowels—don’t sit flat. How can I fix this?
While table-routing 1⁄4" grooves in drawer sides, my bit changed depth during the cut. What am I doing wrong?
How can I rout a groove to accept the bottom panel in a small box-jointed box without exposing the unsightly groove on the outside of the box?
I received a router as a gift, and it has a 3"-long black plastic “pod” near the end of the power cord. What is it? If it’s not important, can I remove it without damaging the router?
