This is a router table/lift/fence combo that will terrify the the guys at Festool and Incra. As Stumpy completes the three episode router table series he unveils the completed setup- two router tables complete with micro-adjustable lifts, built in bit storage, dual dust collection, a fantastic sliding table and a fence that uses Incra’s innovative positioner technology without violating any patents! In the meantime you’ll see how to get a high quality router plate for about $10...
Its been a whirlwind of a Fall (and now Winter) and things seem to be changing quickly. I’ve gotten some shop time worked in here and there between my job and spending time with my wife and kids. My shop (aka- half of the garage) is quickly transforming as I continue to acquire tools. The next tool that I need to get into gear is my workbench. I last left you with the very early stages of the planning and assembly of the top. My top is essentially two slabs of butcher block table t...

WHAT I DID TODAYI managed to get more of the black filled in. Some of the fingers, the whiskers and a few other African Blackwood infills. I also put in the middle leg with Ash. The whole project looked so grubby from glue residue and smudges that I finally cleaned it up a little. It isn’t easy because many of the infill pieces are slightly proud of the background. I have been whittling these down with sharp chisels a little everyday. My intention is to handplane it when everything i...

I recently read a comment made by a beginning woodworker that made me think about how many times I heard this exact sentiment stated over and over by many woodworkers over the years and it still gets a reaction from me. Have you ever heard someone or maybe even yourself say: I’m going to build my project with cheap lumber because I’d hate to screw up or ruin an expensive piece of wood. I know this statement is usually based on the fact that we feel we don’t have the w...
Today started the testing process. I didn’t feel well at all, but figured that I could handle just testing, as I didn’t foresee any problems, so off to the shop I went. I was wrong. Oh boy was I wrong. There was a problem, a huge one. While building up tracks, nothing lined up as it should.After doing some measuring and double, and triple checking, I found the problem. I had made a gigantic mistake. I’m not talking about a little boo-boo. I’m talking a mistake of epic ...

A wise woodworker once told me “Every woodworker should know at least one guy named jeremiah, but it doesnt really matter… So forget it.” That woodworker was me… So forget it. But hey, I’m back! For now. And man I tell ya it’s been an interesting few weeks. Busy and interesting few weeks. Sold a bunch of old music gear i havent used in 5 or 6 years and made a couple grand so i upgraded some of my more frequently used tools! Of course i bought tools…...
