As I said earlier I have the yellow Oak-Park router top. Here’s a photo of it: (Since the opening for the router is offset (not in the middle) I am going to have my router sit on the right and have doors and drawers on the left. I think a problem with the “Norm” type router table is that putting the router in the middle leaves a narrow space on each side for holding router accessories. We’ll get to that in a future post.) I need a solid frame around my yel...
Did more work on the bench this weekend along with stuff I had going on. Drilled the Dog holes in the top and used my hold fasts for the first time. I bought the grammercy Hold fasts back in late December. these hold fasts are great and were not a lot of money. working on the base next, the through mortises aren’t going to be easy.
Greetings All, Here it is week 6 of 2011 and I gotta tell you I did not really think I was going to have much to post about this week. I did not get a lot of shop time at all. But after sitting and watching some of Steve Ramsey’s older videos on YouTube Friday night I came across one I just had to try. So I ventured into the shop yesterday evening and started preparations on this. Once I had this going I realized I really wanted to finish off my table that has been sitting around; in ...
FINALLY!!! After several weeks of little to no shop time each day, I finally hit another major milestone. The base is complete; glued up and sitting in the clamps for the night. The past few weeks have been crazy for me: new projects at work, a battle with the flu, getting 15 of my students ready for a competition, etc. I was able to manage about 30 minutes of shop time every other night at best. It was 14 days of knocking out one little task after another until it all came to fruition. I ...

“This molding cutter will not fit my insert for the table saw,” I says to me. So I says, “Let’s make a new one.” “Use some MDF and trace the Zero Clearance Insert you bought from Lee Craft,” says I to me. “yes, and good folk they were.” “Trace the thickness needed” says I. Okay, enough of that weird self talk. Time for the coping saw, having ripped MDF to thickness. Trace the parts of the old ZCI so that it will fit...
I need a new router table. I had made my first one but realized it was not the strongest design and needed a lot of improvements and additions. It was a basic four legged table with aprons and a small crosspiece between the legs near the bottom. I don’t have a photo because I’ve already taken it apart. The old table had aprons that fit with tenons into the four legs’ mortises. Because of the amount of stress the table received from being dragged around the shop (no ca...
I know, more cheap shelves. Let’s face it, most of us would rather buy tools not shelves. With that in mind here is a shlef that only requires 2×4s, 1/2” plywood, wood screws,& some nuts,bolts, & washers. I have seen quite a few of your workshops out there, And a lot of you have metal buildings with C or Z purlins to columns type metal building construction. So this will be the kind of drawing that I’m posting today. You can apply the same principles to a buildi...
