Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Creating a Mixed Nut Dish from a log I found

12-29-2017 05:41 PM by beahan | 3 comments »

I wanted to make a nut dish like one that my grandparents used to have. Recently I found a log that was thick enough to make one. I know this project is rather simple to do, but I think the nut dish looks way better than a plastic bowl of nuts on the counter. I have embedded the video, enjoy! Chris View on YouTube

Table Saw Station #5: Downdraft and Electrical

12-25-2017 09:40 PM by Brazz04 | 0 comments »

I finally got around to finishing up the table saw station, but I forgot to take many pictures! I installed the electrical for the saw and router as well as added an outlet to plug in the random orbit sander. Finally, I added the downdraft sanding chute and drilled the holes in the top. The final addition was a smaller version of the dust 4” dust vent selector. I used a 2.5” adapter that can used either at the router fence or can be hooked directly to the random orbit sander f...

Shop stuff #113: Something Roubo-esque Pt 1 It's a long video

12-18-2017 09:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

They are taking down some dead and dangerous trees around our place. If you have been following you will know that I have plenty of firewood. I decided to take a section on one tree and mill it up into slabs, freehand, with a chain saw. Not a job for the faint of heart. Then I proceed to “take the ugly” out of it with a router and sled. I am calling this Part One of “Something Roubo-esque” as I am hoping it is the start of my workbench build. Parts of this series...

Brynn's Desk Build #4: Overview of the build

12-17-2017 09:47 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

This writing desk is one of my favorite builds. Made from cherry, with spaltted maple for the side panels and drawer pulls. The drawer pulls are held in place with walnut posts for a little accent. If you are interested in the build process here is a little build video. I started out milling the legs and cutting them to length. Next, laying out the joinery and drawing in the curve I liked for the legs. It is way easier to cut all the joinery to before cutting the curves. This gives...

CNC router build #1: CNC router plans and back story

11-29-2017 09:14 PM by Mainiac Matt | 7 comments »

Hi all, After years of planning and several different design variations… all with a tight budget in mind, I am finally building a CNC gantry robot. I have been an active dumpster diver at work for linear motion and electrical components replaced on existing machinery, or salvaged off of scrapped machinery. But I could never get to the point where I could build the machine I wanted within the puny budget I had. However, I finally pitched this project successfully to my boss at wo...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #8: Edge profile and final sanding, onto finish work

11-26-2017 03:19 PM by Reinan | 3 comments »

As this table is a gift for a young couple, I thought a rounded edge on the most exposed corners would be prudent; possible small ones in the future and all. So I used a 1/8 round over bit in my venerable PC 100 which did the job well but ackwardly at times. I wish I had a smaller unit for this kind of work and have been considering the purchase of a lighter one handed type router. After completing the machine work, I sanded everything to 400 grit, wet sanding the table top. I put one thi...

Router Table Idea's #1: What to do?

11-22-2017 11:08 PM by MBAJIM | 13 comments »

Hi everyone, I have a router table that we’ve attached an old Bosch 1615EVS Plunge Router to, and here’s my problem; I need something that will raise and lower the router bit WITHOUT me having to get under the router, release the lock, and then crank the up / down spindle. I’ve searched for this for a few months and can’t find anything that would allow me an easier way to raise and lower the bit. Thanks everyone, Jim
