  2. When is the registration for the remaining router webinars coming out. Unfortunately, I missed this evening’s seminar but, hope to attend the others…

    1. If you are a Canadian Woodworking member you will receive an email with a link to the next webinar. If you are not a member you can join here.

  3. I’m looking forward to this webinar. With the time zone issue it’s hard to make your session. I’ll definitely watch the recorded version. Thanks.

  4. I have a Leigh dovetail jig but have trouble avoiding splintering. I have tried sacrificial boards but still have issues. Will there be time for discussing tricks of the trade?

  5. Will members be able to access the seminars afterwards? I would really like to see this but away on the first night.
