In addition to an appropriate router you will need a minimum selection of router BITS.

The best bits to have for maximum flexibility are:

• 90 degree V BIT


• Ό” Core Box Bit (A Round Nose Bit will also work)


• 3/8” Core Box Bit


If you want additional Bits to add to your arsenal I would also recommend:
• 60 degree V Bit (often only available at specialty woodworking stores)


• ½” Core Box Bit.


As you purchase your bits pay attention to the shank (router bit shaft) size as it will need to be the same size as the collet (the receiving end in the router). Ό” versus ½”.

You need Clamps to hold your work down.

I have had good luck with the Irwin Brand. These are “One Handed” clamps with soft pads to avoid pressure damage to your work.
