The Deluxe Router Table...Improved

01-12-2011 04:54 AM by woodworkerscott | 19 comments »

I made a video awhile back on improvements I feel I have made to the Deluxe Router Table featured on the New Yankee Workshop with Norm Abram. In the video I do not have a router fence on the table, for good reason…..I am still designing one that will do everything I like. I attach a temporary one when needed. There are several changes I think that needed to be made to be more practical in both design and cost. Example of topics covered: Enclosed router compartment- not necessary and ...

The Basement #11: Incra Router Table - Bit Storage

01-02-2011 12:30 AM by JL7 | 5 comments »

Added a bit shelf and a drawer to the table, both out of Maple. The shelf is 1” thick laminated from narrow strips basically cutting board style with breadboard ends. I used a little spray adhesive and some graph paper as a drilling guide – despite that I did manage to drill 2 holes off location…...... The template holder just sits on the bottom and you can slide it out a bit to grab what you need. The drawer box is painted MDF ...

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” Aristotle…Greek Philosopher (384 BC – 322 BC) Many of us are surrounded with pictures that we cherish.

The Basement #7: New Incra Router Table

11-27-2010 12:09 AM by JL7 | 6 comments »

I finally got the materials together to build a decent router table. I have had the Incra Ultra Jig around for awhile now, and have used it on some of my previous router tables, but my homemade tops were always off just a little. Always seem to have trouble getting the router plates to sit just right in the opening, etc. This time I bit the bullet and bought Woodpeckers 27×43 offset table along with the PRL V2 lift (very sweet!). I acquired the extruded aluminum pieces from some di...

Router table the finaleA little tour through my last part on this project. So here are the place we will end as usual… Yes I am Mr. backwards. To finish where we ended last, this is the glue up of the vacuum hole.I made pieces of plywood that could make it tight, so the suction will be optimal.Did that make any sense? No this is not a ship drill press… And you are not on drugs!It’s just tilted to drill the holes for the vacuum hose mount, I wanted it to come in on a angel, so I...
