You didn't bother to measure anything. Do you just eyeball it and hope you get it right? I know from hard experience and wasting a lot of expensive hardwood that unless you're extremely precise, it'll fail every time.

Steve ! I decided to improve my still basic woodworking skills by using my router more. I need you to make more molding videos. You are an awesome teacher !

We started building our 8" log home 5 years ago and this is our third winter in it. My Ryobi router has stood up to the most challenging task: routing out the wells for the electrical sockets. Most of my Ryobi tools (and especially the battery powered ones and chargers) have failed in pretty short order. Customer service promised to replace them—they never have. With that said; I now think I should go ahead and wear this router out making our own frames for my wife's art business! Thanks for a great series of tutorials.

Very cool. I was thinking I needed to get some fancy profile router bits, but after seeing your video I see that I don't need them I have those bits. Very straight forward and practical tutorial. Thanks. I will subscribe to your channel.

Well you used to be a favorite, but Davey Hustlehot, you gotta be kidding me. Hey John H. you got first place again.
I don't think I was ever a favorite if you are just now watching this video from 7 years ago!

I like the router but $3 for a frame at DG with the glass.. I'll spend that time saved on other projects. Good video though.
Ashley Bensing (7 months ago)
The best part was the revealing of the picture in the frame 😂
StevieD and AshleyC (7 months ago)
I am new and learning some woodworking. These two router videos still helpful in 2018! Thanks.
Mark Burch (7 months ago)
Very well done! Rather than buying new shelves and frames for my new house, I might just try​ and make them all. You make it look fun.
Melissa Noble (8 months ago)
Ha! David H. Doesn't look like that anymore! Good video. Just learning about all this. Thanks for sharing your expertise 🙂
Just rewatched this again, I recently got a router now need the table so I can make frames and other cool things. Is your first course still available? I know the powered up just closed.

Kimberly Swank (9 months ago)
So great. Just got my router and excited to think outside the box. This video definitely helps with that. Thank you!
Ken Bickel (9 months ago)
My router is grabbing the wood shredding it I have tried only taking a 8th at a time but no matter what it starts hammering the wood even breaking bits doing a simple picture frame I've come to inclusion that it's time to just throw it out and but a new router and table any ideas thanks
Collin Courtois (9 months ago)
Great video that motivates to learn more. In that spirit I'd like to have more explanations on "I set the fence" or something to that effect... Could you give more info on how/why to do that in such a way as to get precise and repeatable results. Many thanks in advance.
Edvard Schock (9 months ago)
awsome thanks for the vid.
spankfairy (10 months ago)
Thank-you Steve! I bought a router a few months ago and it is still in the box. I had got to the point with my hand carpentry that I recognized it as a natural progression, having carved a while with the Dremel. Having got it out of the box, I was too scared to use the router and felt too inexperienced. I've just watched a few more of your videos and I'm feeling more optimistic about using it. My Grandpa has long passed and I often find myself missing his advice and encouragement, videos like this really help!

Infectious as usual.
Lucretia Wrolstad (11 months ago)
Glad someone shared your link with me on learning how to use a router. I have learned what I need to for my beginner project of rabbeting the back of a shelf I'm building. I'll keep watching for more tips.

That frame is more worthy of a picture of Pamela Anderson;-)
Carter Schaeffer (1 year ago)
I love your videos! Every time I buy a new tool or refinish a new project and look to YouTube for guidance, as any real man does rather than admitting to his friends that he’s never used a router, your videos seem to always come up. Thank God! Wait. You don’t know my friends right? Keep it up. (SUBSCRIBE)
Dolfocar Ali (1 year ago)
thank you very much for the video it helped me
James Neal (1 year ago)
Great video and hilarious ending. To bad you don't have a video for people with limited tools to do the same. Picture frames with a miter saw, hand held saw and router. I know how useful a table saw is but a lot of beginners don't have a table saw and would d like to start with a picture frame as their first project. Great videos keep it going...
Graham Middo (1 year ago)
Steve. I have been watching many of your vids. Wow, I've learned so much. I know this is an older one but please keep them coming. Getting back to basics is always good so thank you. Have you done any vids on inlays? That would be so cool. I'm 60 and picking up woodworking from when I first started at 13. So,it's good to browse through your vids for help. Thank you. Hope you get this message. Ps I live in the UK.

You should call your frame, "Knight Router."

Matthew Lugo (1 year ago)
Like many of us, I have no idea what you said for a good minute after the photo reveal, and I'm still chuckling. Thank you for all the many videos you've made. I learn a little bit more each time I watch. Keep 'em coming!

DarkSky Geek (1 year ago)
Lol. I liked the shape of the frame and it was indeed a nice end piece, however, the image in the end resulted in a *masterpiece ;) *totally didn’t see that coming!
D. Dominguez (1 year ago)

lmao, that is definitely a perfect picture to use in a frame, couldnt have thought of a better one, haha
Jonas Ausiura (1 year ago)
Also, I have some real thin metal and I am not sure what tool would cut it best. They are 10 feet long and L in shape, you use 2 of them to wrap around a 2x6. What methods of cutting with which tool would you recommend doing this? Thank you in advance
Jonas Ausiura (1 year ago)
what do you use to cut the plexi-glass with?
