    Fine job, looks great. Years ago, when I worked as a Tool and Diemaker, my bench mate would say, any darn fool can do a good job. It’s a good man that can fix his mistakes. :D

    That’s a good choice, you can do a lot of work with a router table. The Triton is a quality tool. Don’t let your spouse find out you can build furniture or kitchen cabinets with it. ��
