Router Table Re-do #4: The Table Top

275 days ago by HuckD | 2 comments »

Well, the rain today halted construction of my storage shed so I had time in the shop to make the top for the router table. It couldn’t be much simpler: two thicknesses of 1/2” plywood. They were cut larger than the cabinet base so that I have room to clamp around the edge. I rough cut a rectangular hole in one piece. Then I pinned 4 pieces of scrap to the top around the hole to make a pattern, then used a handheld router with a guide bushing finish cut the rectangle. Afte...

Router Table Re-do #3: The Router Lift

278 days ago by HuckD | 2 comments »

The router lift is finished. I used plans from John Heisz and they are just superb. The plans include detail drawings with dimensions for each part, good explanations for the assembly and a Sketchup file that allows you to explore the design and see how everything works together. The completed lift works very smoothly – I can’t wait to put it to use. First, some pictures of the lift before installation. It’s just sitting on top of my current router table. ...

Router Table Extension Wing #5: Time to Zig

1294 days ago by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

As usual, no project ever goes the way I envision it. Even projects that I design 1st tend to take a left turn at some point. And so it is that I have hit that left turn in this project. With the top finished and ready to be cut for the miter track and the router opening I was left with trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to do and whether or not I wanted an insert plate. Two things happened which are going to change the direction of this project a little bit. The 1st was finall...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #6: A Class Act

1708 days ago by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

It looks like we’ll be running down to SoCal at the end of February to visit family & clients. We’ll take advantage of the opportunity to hit the Gamble House Joinery Tour, hit Disneyland while the kids are at school, and most importantly: Darrell Peart’s Greene & Greene Details I class at the William Ng School of Woodworking! I noticed that Marc Spagnoula (Woodwhisperer) is teaching classes there (i.e. Hall Brothers Frame, etc.). I’m really jazzed because...

Router Table #2: The Motor's In - Triton 3.25hp TRC001 1/2" Precision Router

1717 days ago by PurpLev | 14 comments »

It really started a while back, I got hooked on the idea of a router lift for the table after seeing the Incra Router lift with the magnetic inserts. after that the obsession was fed by finding Woodpeckers’ router lifts with the quick release mechanism which allows for quick lift of the router to rough positioning, and for pulling it all the way up for over the table bit change. then came the Woodpeckers PRL-V2 (also rebranded by Incra with their magnetic inserts, and recently also r...

Sketchup Resources #3: Woodpecker's Router Table Plate

2004 days ago by PurpLev | 6 comments »

This is a model for the Woodpecker’s router table plate sized 9-1/4” x 11-3/4”. it is the same size for all their lift/non lift plates, also same size for the pinnacle plates, Jessem plates, and incra plates that are 9-1/4”x11-3/4” in size. the material width is 3/8” but can be modified to fit other materials. (although it is advertised as 9-1/4”x11-3/4” is it slightly different – I think the margin of error is in the 1/1000 range. but ...

Shown in the video: Stock preparation using the planer and jointer. Making legs, aprons, and cross members for the project. Mortising on the router table. Having a repeatable setup for mortising by using a modified tenon jig. Efficient mortising technique – this project has 32 mortises. The...

My Math teacher might be proud of this

2611 days ago by John Nixon | 9 comments »

With the aid of my motorized router lift, I can create medium to large circles on the router table easily. Forget that router trammel or bandsaw circle jig, with this method, you can make circles on your router table with no dust and no fuss. This method is safer, cleaner and more accurate than many other methods. If you have a router table with a miter slot, check out this setup! The scale is based on the pythagoream thoreom. THe hypotenuse of a right triangle is changed to alter ...
