For Christmas my wife gave me a new router. I thought that I would be returning it, when I first looked at the box. When I was at WoodCraft last month to pick up my new bandsaw, the salesman wanted me to look at it, but I wasn’t really interested. After looking at it though,,,,,,,,, I decided I could find a home for it. I decided it would become a dedicated router table router, because I can lift it from above the table. I ordered a router lift from WP, but it looks like it is going...
Before getting into the specifics, I should say, this won’t mean much unless you own an Incra positioner, but if you don’t own one, they really do a great job in repeatable cuts, unmatched actually. In the past 2 years, I have purchased 3 different Incra setups off of Craigslist for less than 50 cents on the dollar. I gave one of them to my Dad, and still have the Ultra which I’m using on this router table, along with the TS LS (table saw linear screw) on my table saw....

I’ve really been wanting a JDS Multi-Router since I used one while taking a class with David Marks (at William Ng’s school in Anaheim). We used the JDS to make loose M&T joints for our coffee table project and it works REALLY nicely. However, the price tag for a home shop is WAY outside my spending limits (starts at $2,600). So, I’ve made the decision to try and build my own version. I’ve looked all over the web and found a few examples of other brave adventure...
HI FOLKS, WANTED TO TELL YOU ABOUT A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS PRESENT I MADE FOR A SPECIAL FRIEND THAT SURVIVED A HORRENDOUS ACCIDENT THAT LEFT HER WITH A SPINAL INJURY THAT LEFT HER IN A WHEEL CHAIR, AND WITHOUT FULL USE OF HER HANDS. SHE WAS IN A ROLLOVER ACCIDENT, THAT LEFT HER TRAPPED FOR OVER 12 HOURS BEFORE SOMEONE FOUND HER. SHE IS AN AMAZING PERSON, THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A HARD WORKER AND FULL OF LIFE AND ENERGY. I KNOW BEING TRAPPED IN THAT CHAIR IS AGONIZING FOR HER. SHE HAD COMMENTED ON MY...
OK, so we have a box and we have a base. The easy bit is over. On to the scary as hell bit. As I started to contemplate the possible pitfalls in these next steps I really started to wonder if I could carry it off at all without glaring errors that I would be unable to live with. As of this writing that feeling has abated only a little. Oh well if it wasn’t a challenge it wouldn’t be worth the time, would it. Before Starting on the outside the inside veveering has to be done so,...
