The Torque Workcentre can also be used as an over head pin router.To accomplish this you will need a template… basically a board with a groove cut in the shape of the item you want to copy.. so that the groove will move over a pin in the table and the router above will cut the shape below.. Very simple but care must be taken…Here is how to make a template…Next up will be using the template to make a cheese board... in Camphor Laurel of course..I will also be making a templat...

Roll Top Secretaries Desk - Day 1 - The Legs

04-20-2010 05:32 AM by Jim | 5 comments »

I’m starting a new project that I’ve been promising my wife since Christmas. It’s a small roll top desk for the corner of our family room so my wife can do some light paper work without having to go off and lock herself away in the office. It’s a small version of a roll top desk, you will have to wait and see what it looks like in the end because the plan is sitting between my ears at the moment. The desk is solid oak with the exception of the desk top that is oak ply ...

General thoughts on life and woodworking #1: First comments

05-03-2010 07:38 PM by Jack_T | 1 comment »

I have decided to start a blog on my journey in woodworking and how it integrates with my journey through life. Hopefully, some will find it interesting and possibly some might learn something. In the latter case I will claim no credit as it will belong to the individual. I will only be grateful that my self centered musings were of help. In later entries I will discuss my background, my shop, my projects and of course my thoughts such as they are.

'57 Century 15' 'Palomino' #2: Building a Boat 'Rotisserie'

03-21-2016 04:34 PM by gdcarpenter | 2 comments »

Thanks all. After my wife deemed herself a ‘widow’ for the 2 years building my first boat I promised her no more boat builds – a restoration is not a build! This is some of the work to date, having just found this great forum. Made wedges out of 6X6’s and used existing outboard mounting holes to secure wedges to transom. Apologies for the upside downers, IPad bests me. Through bolted a 3/4” pipe flange to double layer of 3/4” ply and screwe...

1 year Anniversary on LJ's

06-12-2010 08:04 PM by reggiek | 8 comments »

This afternoon marks my one year anniversary of joining LJ’s. Even though I had read the blogs and such for several months prior to that, I did not decide to join until this date one year ago. Taking a moment to reflect on the prior year, I would say that this site has given me enormous help, including the tips, tool reviews, ideas and inspirations…but most of all the comaraderie with people that share this love of woodworking. Thank you Martin for providing such an excellen...
