I don't currently own a router, but have some projects coming up that will require some shaping... a long shelf, some work on a bookcase, and possibly a train table for the little ones.
I DO own a Dremel... and my question is whether or not the rotary tool with a router bit, mounted on one of the Dremel router tables will be powerful enough to do the job? The wood will probably be oak for the shelf.
If not, is it easy to use a router by hand to shape in a straight line, or should I also buy a router table with a fence?
All advice appreciated... I'm a total newbie to routers, router tables, etc... but I'm going in soon....
Thanks in advance,
