If you need to route wood, create beautiful, well finished decorative pieces or precision edge woodwork, then you'll need the best wood router for the task. There are plenty of models available, many of which are of the type and quality that will stand up to a hard days work.
I possess several and though it's possible to use some of the old methods to achieve the same end, I prefer to have a tighter turnaround and a happier customer. I use both a plunge router that's mounted on a router table, and a hand held, both equally capable of doing what I need them to do.
I generally recommend the bench models if you're indoors more than you're mobile, or for those that enjoy woodworking as a hobby or they're home improvement enthusiasts. Featured below are the five best wood routers. Good value for money, they're highly rated and well put together power tools.
