Keep an eye open for updates. If anyone else has a process for this, feel free ...

I recently received a Bosch 1617EVSPK for my birthday. The first project for any new router owner is the router table. The design of my table is influenced heavily by the fence system I will be using. I just picked up the “17 Incra LS Super System. In order to allow for the full 17” range of the system while mounting the carriage fully on the table, I am making the top with the dimensions 27×43. The top is made from 2 sheets of 3/4” MDF glued together with Ti...

Yo whats up everybody in this video I get all the shelves to the right width by planning them down. I had to make sure that the designs on the tops of the sides were straight because they were rough cut at the scroll saw.
