Taliesin Desk in Cherry #3: Legs and Grill Work

10-21-2015 02:43 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...

Router Table #1: Cabinet and surface

10-20-2015 06:10 PM by BobFrankly | 1 comment »

It doesn’t take very many attempts at routing smaller pieces of wood to see the benefit of a router table. Midway through my Walnut Lamp project, I got some ideas floating through my head that couldn’t happen without the router table. So my once router table cabinet, now wood scrap holder, is once again a router table cabinet. I started with a rectangle 1×2 base joined by glue and pocket screws, some casters, and a plywood shell: I was mostly using leftover ply from other ...

Homemade tools and jigs #1: Benchtop router table

10-16-2015 12:59 AM by Bernard38 | 0 comments »

I decided to build a router table with a lift, keep it simple and cheap! The lift is based on jay's custom creations lever router lift. I customized it for my needs. It’s made from workshop scraps and used parts. The acrylic is from a sign company’s dumpster and the only bought items were a couple of hose clamps. The router is one of my pc690’s. The acrylic top 3/8”x 12” x 24” with a 1 1/4” bit hole is interchangeable (threaded inserts) with another...

Plugging large holes

10-13-2015 01:18 PM by Nels | 12 comments »

I have used material that had bolts and washers in it. The holes are 1-3/4” and I need to plug these holes. Cutting the exsisting holes with a router or drill bit is easy. How can I cut a plug accurately that is 2-1/2” in diameter and 1/2” thick? I can make the hole smaller (maybe 2-3/8” or 2-1/4”), but I want to cut out the defects around where the bolt holes are. The material is oak and there are about 200 holes to plug. I guess I could turn the plugs,...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #57: Back in the Workshop!

10-03-2015 01:13 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

Having spent a few months doing nother but maintenance , I now have time to spend back in the workshop, so the other day, I decided it was time to get a simple project out of the way, which would help a family member. One of my dogs is a rescue dog, he was abused as a Pup and as a result his jaw is deformed, making it difficult for him to eat, he pushes his bowl all over the floor trying to get his food, so he needed a dog table, something to stop his bowl moving, and raise it high enough ...

Super workbench (at least for me)

09-24-2015 09:08 PM by woodworkerguyca | 4 comments »

For about a month I have been working on a new workbench. I’ve spent a little time researching what others have done to integrate the 3 tools I use the most, table saw, miter saw, router. The miter saw is held in place by sliding it over 4 aluminum pins so it can quickly moved to under the surface when I need more space. I kept the cutout so I can place the table cutout back when I remove the saw. I’m still working out how to mount the router to the table...

HHWW: Jigs and Tool Mods #1: Router Surface Plane - A Jig for Precision Trimming

09-22-2015 07:53 PM by Ted Ewen | 2 comments »

I saw this as I was trying to understand routers and the myriad bits and bobs that go along with them. I thought it a clever idea and wanted to keep track of it, and I reckoned some of you might think so too, so here it is.
