  • Richard, I have to thank you! I just received a check for a commission from a new client in New Hope PA. He had seen my work on your web site (he bought a fence/radius guide) connected a few dots from other pubications and decided to buy some furniture for his home. Your router guide system will play a huge role in executing the various commissions for him! I'll pass along photos when they are complete. In the mean-time, here is a hall table made with your tools. A very appreciative user - Michael .
