New shop! #10: Router Table Continued

10-08-2016 01:10 PM by Steve Felsheim | 3 comments »

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...

Router Table Build #5: Cabinet Build

07-15-2016 04:36 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

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...

Lego Table #13: Sliding bottom idea...

12-11-2015 10:57 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

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...

Lego Table #11: Drawer fronts

12-11-2015 10:46 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

*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...

Evolution of my Small Woodshop #5: A Router Table you can eat off

10-28-2015 03:46 PM by monster1971 | 1 comment »

My current workbench is a hand-me down kitchen cabinet from my mother in law. A mid grade 3 drawer w/ a butcher block top. I didn’t want to take it at first but then thought…...this would be nice in my woodshop. I threw some wheels on it for mobility and the drawers actually are convenient for holding hold a lot of my power tools. Top is semi sturdy. Fast forward and I thought this would be a great router table. Deciding on a router plate: Did I even need a router p...

10-16-2015 12:59 AM by Bernard38 | 0 comments »

I decided to build a router table with a lift, keep it simple and cheap! The lift is based on jay's custom creations lever router lift. I customized it for my needs. It’s made from workshop scraps and used parts. The acrylic is from a sign company’s dumpster and the only bought items were a couple of hose clamps. The router is one of my pc690’s. The acrylic top 3/8”x 12” x 24” with a 1 1/4” bit hole is interchangeable (threaded inserts) with another...

So I just got done building my first router table, by cannibalizing an old work bench I had built a few years ago, and stealing the plate from my other router table, my problem due to my limited and crowded work space, is keeping things with in reach, I have four router bits that I use religiously so having them with right there with in reach is more convenient for me, so i came up with the fence storage on the back side of the fence, this way here, I can keep my router bits with in r...
