Router table top for my table saw

11-06-2010 12:08 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

This picture shows a possible solution to attaching my router table top to my table saw. The aluminum rail attaches to the saw and the top attaches to the rail. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to LJ joeE. Thanks joeE.

Working out the design.

11-06-2010 12:01 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

First I’d like to thank all those who have provided insight into how I might be able to attach my router table top to my table saw. The suggestions made have given me a number of ideas. Who knows, it may come to the point where I incorporate all the ideas in one way or another. At any rate, I really appreciate it. I created a 3d model of a suggested design and then posted it as a pic into a message in order to see if I had the correct understanding of the suggestion. I suppose I co...

Foot rail for the bar...... #2: Holes and profiles.

11-05-2010 10:17 PM by degoose | 5 comments »

I set up a 40 mm Forstner bit in the drill press and using a sacrificial top and fence drilled the holes through which the 40 mm Dowel will pass.. Then a quick trip around the front edges with a 1/2 roundover bit in the router…Next time I post these brackets will be after they are installed on the bar….

Nursery Carousel

11-05-2010 05:28 PM by LarryS | 3 comments »

This gravity-powered carousel is cut from poplar. The base is eight (8) inches in diameter and the horses are approximately four (4) inches wide by four (4) inches high as positioned. A single string passes through four (4) holes in the upper base plate and notches in the top of the center column. An oscillating motion results from rotating the upper base plate a turn or so (the strings wrap around the center column as the plate is rotated, and unwind when the plate is released). ...

Technique Thursday #1: November 4, 2010

11-04-2010 02:32 PM by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

I thought I’d post something for each day of the week. Thursday’s will be Technique Thursday. I’ll tell about some sort of technique that I use in woodworking. Templates: Can’t stress how important templates are. I’ll build them from 1/2” material to form the shape of a cut out. I always use a mechanical means of making a straight cut or a perfect arc (fence, straight edge, compass). It will then be used to trace onto the good piece, rough cut with...

Designing/Making award plaques...

10-31-2010 10:23 PM by Arbo | 6 comments »

My hobby is flying radio controlled airplanes. I am currently president of our local flying club, and with our first banquet dinner coming up, it was brought up by our VP that perhaps we should get back into giving out awards, most improved, best crash, etc. So this is the process of me figuring out how to make some ‘awards’ using my CNC router. I started with our club logo…. Then thinking about slimming it down a bit to make it easier to cut, I modified it a b...

My Monster Router Table #1: Step 1- Sketch Up Design

10-26-2010 09:04 AM by Crushgroovin | 11 comments »

Ok I now am somewhat fluent in Sketch-up! Woo Hooo. It only took me getting horribly sick for two weeks. Came down with a cold October 11th, which turned into a horrible sinus infection on October 14th. My fever broke for good this past Saturday. I actually made use of my time though. Started out watching all the videos on skethupforwoodworkers.com and off I went. It took me some trial and error, and using my wifes 17” laptop instead of my Netbook. The idea was mine but I wasn’...

Evolution of my router planer #4: Version 1.2a

10-21-2010 06:01 PM by TZH | 4 comments »

Version 1.2a At this point I decided to get more “radical” in my design approach. I removed two of the cross rails (found out through experience that I didn’t need them anyway). Then I took the corner poles out of the flanges and put a “sleeve” on the side of my table for the corner poles to slide into (see photo below). Electrical conduit clamps work great for attaching the sleeves. This design also allowed me to adjust the height of the router sled in...

Evolution of my router planer #3: Version 1.2

10-20-2010 10:31 PM by TZH | 5 comments »

Movin’ right along, here’s Version 1.2 of my router planer. Because I’d made the router sled larger in order to accommodate larger pieces, I now needed to design something bigger for the sled to ride on. That’s when I came up with the idea of using longer piping for the end poles and cross rails (instead of the 12” pipes and the plywood cross rails shown in my first design). The photo below shows my first attempt (my “beta” version) at this new des...
