I have a pretty small basement shop. It’s not set up perfectly, but given the constraints I am working with, I think I’ve done pretty well with it. I have: - a very fragile-looking old water main coming in one wall about 12” above the floor- steam heating pipes bisecting the shop area right in the middle, about 6ft above the floor. I am 6’1” - a walk-out door and a set of 5 stairs leading down to the basement on one wall- about 10×22 feet of total space w...
Time for a new router table, the old Rockler with the really old Jessum router lift that was not up to heavy work, had to go. The other no name table top table was too narrow, and the MDF table had serious bracing underneath to try and keep it from dipping in the center. The fence and the newer Jessem router lift on this unit were keepers. I used a piece of old growth clear pine for the trestle, loose 1/2” double tenons glued in and double bolted stretchers between, the nuts and rod ...
Needed a router table, didn’t want to go out and just buy one when as a woodworker, build it. So spend time on You Tube and make a plan.The stool I previously made had compound angles to add strength and stability to the base I would use 5 degree angles here. 2X4’s used for the legs, trimmed to 3” X 1 3/8”. Cross members are spruce 1X3, glued and screwed. Top of the stand is 20 X 28Router table top is 24×32. 3/4” plywood and a 1/8” marker hardboa...

Being new to woodworking, shop projects are a large part of my efforts as new tools come into the shop and the shop becomes more of a shop than a garage. I am refurbishing one wall at a time, so please keep that in mind when an unfinished wall comes into view. This was an early project to get my clamps out of the way. It was just a simple box placed on said unfinished wall. please excuse the trailer park curtains. They have been replaced now with the mini blinds. :) This is t...
I had to roundover the edges of some small work-pieces. I have a router table, but the Craftsman router that goes with it needs some work before I can use it safely. So, I used a scrap piece of melamine and threw together this mini router table. Thought it might help someone else in a similar situation, so I made a video. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVU1LbCxGcY Or click the picture below:
We remake our amazing router table fence, complete with lead screw drive positioner similar to the Incra LS system, a micro adjuster, and multi-joinery features. It’s really unlike any router fence you’ve ever seen! It’s a great show, you might even laugh a little. (Friend us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Stumpy Store to help support the show!)
The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #49: New Festool CMS style sliding top router table you can build yourself!
It’s been two years since we built our homemade sliding router table, and it’s time to make some improvements. This is one you HAVE to see! It may look like a regular router table, but the front of the top slides in a precision track, making it safer and more useful than any I’ve ever used. Great for coping rails, safely routing small parts, the possibilities are endless. It’s a great show, you might even laugh a little. So check it HERE! (Friend us on fac...
I cannot believe it has been 1111 days since I posted about my router table. And I never finished it until recently, a bad habit of mine. I had the drawer fronts ready to go, but had to make some drawers. I just never put the drawers together and I was using it without them, I’ll show those in the next post. The switch I’ve had installed for a few years, so I’ll show that now. This is where I left off all those days ago: I had asked about ON/OFF switches and someone...
So I have been working on a pretty large trim project, 100 ls window, 40 or so doors, milled 1.125” x 3.5” milled cypress casing, 5/4 rosetts and plints, 8 ” milled baseboard, some arches, pretty straightforward trim job, but for fixing all the mistakes from the framer and drywaller… its sad how little pride some tradesmen have in their work today.at any rate, I usually try to expand my equipment a little during each project. I had to route out a 1/2” x 3/16&...
