When I built the router table as an extension of my table saw I had in mind using it as more than a router station. For starters it allows me to make wider rips on my table saw, but it does a few more things and I’m not done yet. [Above and below] Like others of its brethren, my router station can be used with or without the fence. I have a vacuum port set in the fence as well as one for the cabinet depending on which one I think will work best. [Below] The router is mount...
Hello guys,On my posts I show large scale work and I mention templates to cut cutting templates to cut on a pin router. I realize some of you might not know what all that means so, I decided to do this blog to show you what has to happen to create a large scale wall art. It would be nice to just cut it out on the scroll saw but I am limited to 26” on my RBI. You all know what that’s like. So I draw the piece full scale and make changes as I go. You can see this in picture 1 where ...
A False Start When I went to the lumber store to buy the 5/4 wood for the top and base I made the mistake of not bringing the plans or dimensions. I ended up making my best guess. When I got home and laid everything out I realized that had bought only enough that I had no margin for error. The base is 3” high and I had so little wood that I needed to be able to get all four parts of the base from a single board. My widest board was only about 6 1/4” wide. I hoped that after ...
In this video, I start by selecting some beautiful figured crotch walnut for the drawer fronts. I resaw the board and then bookmatch the pieces so the “flame” of the figure radiates out from the center of the drawers. I also spend some time cutting and installing inlay in the drawer fronts, build the 6 drawers and then fit them to the openings. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! http://youtu.be/qRlSB-sJtyo
My new network router is light weight and tall.The cables in the back make it unstable and it tips over easily.I made this wooden base to help support the router. Click here to watch my video. Let me know what you think.Thank you.Paul
This is my half size prototype made entirely out of pallet wood (besides hardware).Finish is home made chalk paint with a wax finish (shabby chic) – the finish doesn’t photo very well but I am very happy with it, it came out the best I have been able to achieve so far. This size is perfect for DVDs etc. (I did a more thorough write up but the text disappear after I uploaded the pictures for some reason).
So to start with. The miter slots on my saw were shallow from routing the table top flat. I finally decided last night to setup my incra 1000hd for this saw, but in order to do that, I needed to rout the right slot deeper. Ill get around to the left eventually, but the right slot will pretty much be the incra’s new home. I used the same 10$ ryobi router and HF router speed control I used on the top, and just used the fence as a guide. I started with a 1/4” straight bit an...
I recently discovered on YouTube these bits that are called birds mouth router bits. They make 6,8,12 sided boxes by cutting a notch of a certain angle in the board down its length. Once routed, the board is cut to length dependent on the shapes diameter. The interlock makes glueing and clamping incredibly easy. I got a set of three for $40
