The Straightedge (video) #2: Router Inlay Basics

1576 days ago by Brian Havens | 13 comments »

Here it is. My next video… finally! I feel like I got over a lot of learning curves on this one. I found this a particularly challenging subject to present because router inlay can get involved and there are often several ways to go about the different steps. Trying to cram all that into a video, however, is more likely to discourage folks from trying router inlay. My goal in this video was to present the essential knowledge and skills that one can start building on, thereby remo...

Router Table #3: Simplifying and Completing the Design

1578 days ago by PurpLev | 26 comments »

Finally had a weekend with shop time, but alas – mother nature had other plans. Saturday was 14 degrees (F). a bit on the chilly side of things, but I figured I need to make use of that time. so I took out the phenolic sheet (36”x36”) and marked it for both 24” width and 28” width. I wanted to get a visual representation of the actual top size. the 28” looked a bit too wide in sketchup, and the 24” is the “standard” when you purchase a ...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #4: Arched Candle Holder - gettin' jiggy

1579 days ago by sras | 5 comments »

Now, it’s time to cut the recesses for the candles. I had originally thought of using a Forstner bit, but it does not leave a smooth flat bottom to the recess. Instead, I used the Forstner bit to cut a pattern for use with my router. I plan to use a pattern bit with a bearing. Looks like it is time to build a jig! Since I am only building one of these, I’ll build a temporary jig. The same elements can be used to create a smaller, but permanent jig. I have two hole sizes so...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #3: Arched Candle Holder - It's all about adapting

1581 days ago by sras | 5 comments »

Well, trimming up the sides removed the gaps I showed in the previous post. BUT the trimming exposed other gaps! Definitely needed to do a better job of clamping! Time to adapt. Time to go back to the shrinking scrap pile. As luck would have it, I had two strips of cherry from an even older project. If I remember right, these strips are from the first cherry boards I ever bought (19 years ago). Both strips are long enough and one of them has enough length to cover the ends as well. ...

A journey into the workshop. #29: Making progress on the extension wing.

1582 days ago by dbhost | 5 comments »

Up until now the extension wing to the BT3100 has been a simple two layer 3/4” pine ply lamination. Simply a nice, flat table top. That is all about to change… LOML gave me an early Christmas present of a Bench Dog Pro Plate and Rockler insert template, and I have some Rockler miter track just laying around, so it was time to measure up where I wanted everything, and write is down. 5.25” in from each side, 7” in from the end. Miter slot in 5.5” from the end. ...

Router Table #2: The Motor's In - Triton 3.25hp TRC001 1/2" Precision Router

1584 days ago by PurpLev | 14 comments »

It really started a while back, I got hooked on the idea of a router lift for the table after seeing the Incra Router lift with the magnetic inserts. after that the obsession was fed by finding Woodpeckers’ router lifts with the quick release mechanism which allows for quick lift of the router to rough positioning, and for pulling it all the way up for over the table bit change. then came the Woodpeckers PRL-V2 (also rebranded by Incra with their magnetic inserts, and recently also r...
