George Vondriska shows you an easy way to cut slots using your router and router table. You can get accurate cuts using a spiral upcut bit which acts like a drill bit and allows you to easily plunge into the material. Making pencil marks on the router table fence lets you know exactly where to begin the slot cut and where to end.

    Good video as usual George, but I do one thing different: after completing each pass, before I lift the wood off of the router, I stop the router and wait till the spinning bit to stop before I lift the wood. It’s not all that hard to jiggle the wood just a bit wrong just that little bit enough for the wood to grab the bit creating a dangerous situation. The extra time of the waiting for the bit to stop is not all that much different than the time it takes to unplug and replug the router during bit changes, etc.
