A palm router packs a big punch into a compact size. This makes it easy to use and gives you more control and great visibility. But sometimes it’s easier, and safer, to bring the workpiece to the router. So we gave our palm router an upgrade and built the multitool you see here.
Doing stopped cuts on the router table is a great way to cut the concealed grooves that hold box bottoms. But lowering a board on a spinning router bit has always made me nervous. So I came up with a process that I’m more comfortable with.
