Never touched a router in all my years - bought one the other day - big surprise-
no line of sight cutting with this gadget. Is there some secret to freehand patterns
with a router or do I need to buy a "how to do it" book. You guessed it. I'm in
kindergarten when it comes to routing.

You're right, Mlkman. Also don't forget safety eyewear as well. I like this article because when I buy a book or collection of projects, it assumes that you know all these basics, which I did not, before this. I would love to be a great wood crafter, but stay busy with the job, etc. So I'm a total dweeb when it comes to the simplest things in the woodshop. I would liike to see more things like this.

Looking for a manual or instructions for a WEN Model 1700 Router.
Manufacturers website would be helpful, too.

Good project, but you forgot to include hearing protection in the tools needed tab. Routers are loud, whining machines.
