Apartment Router Table / Table Saw #2: Insert, Rails, and Fence

161 days ago by JonDH | 0 comments »

We left off last time and I had a hole in my table with a blank insert, getting me back to a functional dining room table. Step 1: Install some T track. I originally thought I would just make a long fence and clamp it to the edge of the table. It would be a pain in the neck, but I didn’t think it would get heavy use. Instead I saw a lot of videos and commercial fixtures that use T track, and it looked amazing. I would be able to use hold-down clamps, using a fence would be easier. Ba...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #3: end panel

163 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Test fits of the end panels, not going so well. Lots of gaps. Had to go back and re-do a few things. Couple cuts were even out of square. What I get for rushing things. Reset the corded router, with the “right” bit, a 3/8” straight cutter. reset the fence to be a wee bit more in the center of the board’s edge. Ran all the grooves through, again. But, at least things are now set up for the front and back panels. Checked the raised panels, yep, they wer...

Apartment Router Table / Table Saw #1: Table Modification and Insert

168 days ago by JonDH | 6 comments »

I live in a small apartment but love woodworking. Thinking my old dining room table could be used for dinner and woodworking, I’ll try to convert it to a general workbench, router table and maybe even a table saw. For the first step, I made a frame to cut both the hole in the table and the insert. I used a 1/4” bit with a 1” bushing for the hole and a 1/2” bushing for the insert. Unfortunately one of my clamps slipped while I was working and took too much fro...

Tool Chest or Blanket Chest

171 days ago by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Depending on who sees the finished “box’. Picked up a few planks of Black Walnut 4/4×6” x 8’ Nothing real fancy, but a few knots here and there. Cut the first two planks down a bit. Needed to make some corner posts, and the rail/styles ( not sure which to call them) for the ends. Had four raised panels from another source. Figured I could use two on each end. After getting these down to a rough length, and then a rip cut down the center Time to...

Birth of a 4-axis CNC machine #5: Bet you thought I gave up on this...

175 days ago by DS | 12 comments »

I decided to widen the machine when I started planning for the y axis. I was going to have to cut down most rails anyway so I thought I’d rather have the extra capacity.Also, while I had the entire assembly tore down, I decided to add the maple panels into the frame to rigidize the entire assembly. It has really made a big difference. The y axis began with the guide bearings and some 2” angle.I threaded the ends on the 80/20 rails and secured them to the angle. The plan ...

Part #2 Case and Lid

183 days ago by S4SWWS | 1 comment »

The Sides are S4S Red Oak and the Lid is S4S White Oak with a little character. The lid is a floating panel which I glued up with the box sides and then I cut the lid on the table saw. The bottom is pretty simple, and is made of 1/4 inch oak ply with upholstery leather. Next part is the tray for holding standard sized paper.

Flip Table #4: Mobility and More Questions

184 days ago by hjt | 5 comments »

Phase 3 of the Flip TableTodays’ phase of the project started out to simply add a floor and some wheels, but I also decided to make it a little beefier. Adding the floor:On the side I consider to be the front of the flip table, I put a support piece behind the front legs. I did this to have a little more foot room and allow me to get closer to the table (wife’s idea.) Smart gal! I cut the ¾ plywood just a little larger than needed. I used my jig saw to trim off the un-needed boar...

Works in Progress #4: Humidor Test Build - Day Three

185 days ago by Jerry | 0 comments »

Starting to look like something now. Still needs a little more sanding and a nice finish before parting the top from the bottom. I had intended to do a fully functional humidor for this test, but I went to Woodcrafters today and found out that Spanish Cedar has skyrocketed, so since this is a test, I will probably make the liner out of some inexpensive wood and just make this a box. The wood is hemlock, and is very cheap, but I chose it because I liked the nice tight straight grain. It ...
