Trying new woodworking skills #9: Making tenons

329 days ago by BJODay | 1 comment »

I began cleaning out the mortises. I followed BTimmons advice to start slow and sneak up on the line. I had to find my strongest “cheaters” and a work lamp. I don’t know what I ever did to ruin my eyesight. This worked well. I cleaned up all of the mortises for the smallest table. They do not look as clean as ones I’ve seen posted here and on Youtube but each one is smoother than the previous one. I was a little nervous about finishing all of the mortises so I thoug...

New Router Table #7: Almost Finished

337 days ago by jeffbranch | 2 comments »

Working on the back of my router table. The end is in sight. With the completion of the router table top and the fence, I am down to the final items before I can call this project finished. My punch list contains these items… - Complete the back- Mount the router- Install the power switch- Enclose the router area Complete the BackThis step involves adding a clamp which will latch onto the right wing of my table saw. I also need to plug the screw holes and paint the back. The illustra...

New Router Table #6: Making the Fence

348 days ago by jeffbranch | 0 comments »

Working out the fence design. It is not unusual for me to put in more than two hours of drive time on certain work days. This allows me considerable time to contemplate upcoming steps while building a project. Since creating the fence for my new router table has been rapidly approaching, I have been thinking of combining two router table fence designs seen in separate issues of Fine Woodworking magazine. If you have been following my progress, you most likely have already seen this imag...

Dust Collection For My Veritas Router Table

354 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

A while back I grabbed a great deal on a complete Veritas steel plate router table setup…complete with the stand, the fence, the fence sled, and a Bosch 2 1/2 HP variable speed router. I built a cabinet for it to sit on with a draw for the bits/router stuff and a couple adjustable shelves and a Kreg router safety switch located at knee height.. The Veritas router stand is open and made of Baltic Birch ply..so I pondered for a while on how to do the dust collection..I was making huge me...

New Router Table #5: Building the Top

356 days ago by jeffbranch | 2 comments »

Before I get to the top, I left off in my last post on this build with the tricky addition of the dust port to the back of the router table. This would have been a lot easier if I had completed this step prior to attaching the back to the case, but it just didn’t happen that way. To get started on the dust port, I taped it in place on a thin piece of pine… Using a flush trim bit in my router I create the template I need to cut the hole in the back… After pos...

New Router Table #3: Drawer Construction

364 days ago by jeffbranch | 2 comments »

If you looked up the word “procrastinate” at Merriam-Webster.com, you would find the following definition: to put off intentionally and habitually This word came to mind this past Sunday when our get-together at the neighbor’s house had to be re-scheduled. Suddenly, I had a large chunk of the day which could be devoted to building the drawer for my router table. But guess what? I got zero woodworking done; procrastination had taken firm hold of me and blocked me from my peaceful bas...

Router Table with Motorized Lift

368 days ago by Denco | 5 comments »

First time posting a project. I’m still a novice and was in way over my head, but after a long time, here’s my router table. The lift is motorized using a PLC controller and a 12VDC motor normally used for automatic car seats in Honda automobiles. The 120VAC to 12VDC conversion was accomplished using a computer power supply. Most of the wood I used was cheap wood from the big box stores or ugly scraps I had on-hand, so I painted it red, white, and blue and put clear coats over it....

New Router Table #2: Making Progress and Making Mistakes

372 days ago by jeffbranch | 0 comments »

The goal with this entry– create the case face frame (shown in blue) and… …build the back, then put the case together. I find woodworking to be a humbling hobby. I have been working with wood for about 30 years and while I don’t consider myself an expert, I think by now I should know enough to keep from making silly mistakes. But, as I have made progress on my new router table several mistakes have surfaced; two of them being significant ones. I thought about listing them in this blo...
