Home made router table

01-25-2012 11:40 PM by brevort | 3 comments »

Here is a router table I made from an old table saw top. I wanted to have a router table that was solid and accurate when making cuts. I found this table saw top in my dad’s garage one day and I knew just what I was going to do with it. Using an end mill in my router, I carefully routered a flat pocket in the back side of the top just big enough to mount the router to it. Then I purchased a piece of gage stock to replace the blade insert plate. To get the right shape I needed to cut the...

Virtual Pinball Machine #2: The Lower Cabinet Build

01-25-2012 08:39 PM by milbert | 4 comments »

The build of the virtual pinball machine is coming right around. The lower part of the machine is mostly done with the exception of some button and ventilation holes will need to be added. Here are some pictures of the assembly… The hardest part of this cabinet for me was the miter cuts where the sides meet the front. I did it this way for aesthetic purposes since the cabinet would have no trim I don’t want to see the plywood edges. Here is a picture of the final...

Mortising Jig #1: Mortising Jig for Bed Hardware

01-24-2012 03:24 PM by Phil277 | 5 comments »

The design of this came about when we decided to update our mattress for out bed. We’ve had a water bed for a long time and decided to buy a standard mattress. We didn’t want to change the headboard and foot board that I made a few years ago as it matches out bedroom furniture nicely. The waterboard had box frame that couldn’t be used with the new mattress I had to make standard bed rails. I bought steel bed rail fasteners to attach the rails to the headboard and footboard. Now the fun begins...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #28: Making Window Sashes with Loose Tenons (dominos) 1

01-08-2012 07:09 PM by gizmodyne | 4 comments »

Have not been here much in the last year or so. I got a new position at work which has taken up more time in a good way. I have actually built a bunch more of the kitchen cabinets which I will post later. I am finally building some removable sliding windows for the porch. I put some fixed windows in a few years ago, but it was long enough that I completely forgot how to do the job smoothly. So I am going to document it this time. In this blog: How to make the frames. Here are two of the...

Christmas 2011 Just Got Better!!!

01-08-2012 07:06 PM by matt garcia | 3 comments »

As you know, I work for an incredible boss!! This year, with my Christmas bonus, I purchased a Bench Dog Cast Iron router table extension for my table saw. I was so stoked when I read on Rockler’s website that it fit their Router Lift FX. Little did I know that they changed the plate dimension, and my current model was too small. So I had to wait until payday to get a new one. A few days passed, and there I was at the Rockler counter, when their associate offered me a 20% discount!...
