A router is a power tool with a shaped cutter used for making grooves for joints, decorative moldings, keyholes for hanging, and much more. Handheld routers can be used for a variety of operations, but a router mounted in a table with a fence allows a greater degree of safety and accuracy, as well as the ability to use jigs, accessories, and workholders.
