It will work, but a jig saw will work just as good. A plunge router may be a better choice.

Very easy to use and i love jt
The unboxing was awesome, it was in its carry case and all the bits were easy to identify. I enjoyed using this router as it was easy to move around and the guide is clear/easy to see what you are doing. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone! I used this to inlay LED lights into a couple cornhole boards! It came out so cool! Wish you could post short videos here, I would show you!

This thing is a beast!
Now granted this is the first router that I’ve ever owned and I am a weekend wood warrior. This router is amazing. Very powerful. It’s all about using the right bit for whatever result you are looking for. Don’t takeoff too much material at one time or you’ll burn the wood. This thing was a great purchase for $89, it came with the bag and three bits! I love it. Most definitely make sure you wear eye protection as well as a mask. You’ll need it.

I bought this at my local Home Depot (Hamilton Road store Gahanna Ohio). It is as advertised and works great with the router table I am using it with. The only issue I have is with the store. I bought this new from the new stock and in what appeared to be an unopened box. However, when I got it home and opened it I found the router box, bag and unit itself to have a significant amount of MDF dust in all mentioned components. A router bit was installed in the unit and was obviously used and not one of the three bits indicated as included in the packaging. Clearly it was bought for a one time use and returned to the store as unopened. It works fine and I am happy with it.

My dad used to be a carpenter when I was a little girl and now he's so proud to see me using the knowledge he passed on. Such a proud daughter yet the hardest thing was getting his approval on the project I was working on. I think I'm doing a great job, still not finished but I'm making great progress.

great for DIY home projects
I bought this to build custom shelves in my office. The bits it came with did a great job making my shelf look professional. other routers I have used did not have a light or a shield so that was a plus.

Needed a router for a few small projects so I didn't want to spend much. I picked up this Ryobi router not expecting much and I must say I've been pleasantly surprised. No this does not have a lot of features and the thing is louder than a raccoon caught in a live trap but it gets the job done. I've used the thing more than I ever expected and I plan on attaching it to a table. A good quality bit and this machine will get you far. If I ever upgrade it'll be for a plunger.
