After reading our project on using a router, we felt is was sensible to give you some idea of the types of router bit available from Builders Merchants and DIY Stores.

Each bit shown here will give you a different shape or "molding" and a very ordinary piece of timber can be turned into a piece of bespoke furniture quite easily.

The shape of each individual router bit can be seen from the bit itself and the shape it produces on the timber can be seen underneath.
