Continue reading to identify some of the benefits linked to using a Festool router for your next woodworking project.
Shaping Stylish Molding
Routers are known for their ability to create stylish and decorative molding. Using a Festool router allows you to swap out different router bits, including a round over bit or a straight cutting bit, to craft various shapes and designs in molding, applying them to windows, doors, baseboards, and more.
Cutting a Dado
A dado can be defined as a joint, slot, or supportive edge used to support shelving in structures such as cabinets, bookcases, and other furniture pieces. Pairing your Festool router with a Festool worktable and guide rail can make cutting a dado quick, easy, and safe. When cutting a dado, woodworkers typically use a router with a straight bit, allowing you to cut the surface without difficulty.
Cutting Grooves, Patterns, and Designs
Festool routers allow users to cut various grooves, patterns, and designs across multiple wood pieces with precision and ease. This is helpful for repairing damaged wood furniture pieces such as tables by tracing over the original piece recreating the groove, pattern, or design. Festool routers are also great for freehand routing, allowing you to outline intricate designs or lettering over flat pieces of wood.
