« Part 18: Biscuit Drawers and a great $4 tool... Part 19 of Blue Collar Woodworking series Part 20: Stumpy's "Accidental Invention" just might CHANGE THE WORLD! »

I don’t know why anyone would want to skin a cat, but I hear there is more than one way to do it. The same is true with raised panels, you know, the ones we use on all our fancy cabinet doors… So this week Stumpy tries to make one with nothing but a Stanley #4 hand plane…

...then he decides to make a machine to do it for him!

Before all is said an done we have a new jig that does far more than it was originally intended to, and Stumpy is telling us the next best thing to having a different router for every bit.

Then we make a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, and Stumpy tells you why he hates April 15th.

It’s sure to be more fun than a barrel of Kool-whip, so enjoy!

Great video!!!

I think I wood build the panel jig for the router, before I ever even thought about doing it by hand. I’m either lazy, like jigs or I am more of a “Tim the Tool Man” type of guy. Of course I could posses all three character traits.

I’m actually quite psyched about the “Jig Contest”. I’m excited for many reasons, it’s utilitarian (looks don’t count as much as function), there are several that I need (requires my tendancy to procrastinate to be overcome) & I can’t loose. Even if I don’t win the contest, I will get a jig, if not several, that will serve me well. That’s a win in my book.

I have yet to use mugbook & waddle! Or is that Facebook & twitter??? Either way, it seems joining the 21st century is fast approaching. I like technology, just NOT when it starts to overflow my plate. I prefer a small plate not a serving platter of tasks!!!

Thanks, for my weekly “fix” of info, humor & motivation.

I am going to make a microadjust function to raise and lower the router more accurately. Then I will put sketchup plans in the Stumpy Store for anyone who wants them.

But I think everyone should try to do at least one with a hand plane. It was fun!

I like the router base tip. I was hoping you might mention how you were able to quickly attach the router to your panel raising jig. Nice one, and thanks.
