Now, with all of that se tup, you can start the routing. Know that bigger routers get the job done faster and easier than smaller models. Use both hands when routing. Hold the machine down and keep your forearms on the table while plunging for extra control. Plung the router and then use your wrists to move it through the wood.
Never plunge the router without securing your forearms on the table because you could easily destroy your piece, and even hurt yourself in the process. Remember that safety always comes first, no matter what.
