Just finished the construction on the router table. Pretty happy with it. My electrician friend scoffed (rightfully so) at my switch because I didn’t mount it in a box. I cut out the old switch location and installed it properly. Not many practical color choices of laminate at the home center, so black it is. I used Incra T-Track and a Woodpecker router plate that will hold a Triton 3.125 HP router. Given the Triton has a tool to adjust the height from above the table, and...
Not a heck of a lot of progress this weekend. WEPs took most of the time. But my 3 1/4 PC arrived and installed along with top DC hose.

Its been a long time between shop projects. Harbor Freight Dust Collection System still seating in pieces yet to be assembled as are a few other projects in various states of incompleteness :-( However, the past week I did manage to get some shop time. The new layout I made for the shop several months ago before all the WEPs started is proving out to be very productive. I actually have dedicated space to layout, cut, fabricate, and assemble. Still need a finishing area. However, separat...
In this You Tube video https://youtu.be/7ETTpbTIpgo- , I’m exchanging out an OSB sheet for plywood to install a homemade router table. This is a quick & dirty installation and budget friendly as well. I hope you enjoy the video. Always make time to be creative.
After a quick check on the wounded drawer to see how things were drying, I came to the conclusion that my repair work accomplished it’s goal. The drawer is nice and sturdy again after the glue. However, I’m a little concerned about the depth of the router cut. I may have to redo this one. I decided to shelve the drawers and move on with the other trickery needed to finish the top. I need to make the little bins on the wings that will collect Legos the kids scoop off the main play surfa...
*Note, this post is image heavy. If you want to see all the pictures, click here see my woodworking blog.* I had a simple goal today—get the drawer fronts all cut out and shaped.Drawer Fronts I started on the drawer fronts today. First I made a template of the shape I wanted to cut out for a finger pull. I used 1/4” plywood I had laying around. Then I clamped the template to my 3 1/2” poplar planks and traced the same cutout pattern. Using my drill press, I punched out the wast...
