Router table for my Unisaw #3: Pretty much done except a few finishing items

07-20-2011 02:38 AM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

Despite nagging back pain all week, I was able to complete my router table. Vicodin and Methocarbamol are wonderful things. I digress. . . . I routed recesses in the corners to allow mounting bolts to go in, and this took a while because the top is 2 1/4” thick. I needed several passes to get the depth I needed. I also routed out a couple of places just to lighten the thing up a bit. Turns out I could have routed out much more material than I did. Oh well. I put 2×...

MODIFICATIONS ON ROUTER PANTOGRAPH

07-14-2011 10:32 AM by EMVarona | 1 comment »

1. Used two metal parallel arms of the same length. This makes possible a wider range of size variations since the router tray can be moved along a longer distance in relation to the template. Furthermore, lifting the router is easier when moving the stylus to a new position.http://www.flickr.com/photos/edurink/5935802701/ The earlier version of this router pantograph is found here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/50802 2. One problem noted in the original set up is the tendency for th...

Sign for turtle sanctuary #1: Routering and burning the sign

07-08-2011 07:12 PM by Bertha | 34 comments »

My fiance’ spotted an area on our property where turtles like to congregate and she settled upon making a sign for them. First, she sketched out the design on an Aspen plank and weathered the edges with a round microplane. Then, she routed the lettering using a straight bit on low speed with a plunge. Third, she burnt in her details. I told her a laminate trimmer would work but she wanted to use “a big one”. I may be competing for shop time soon;)

Wedding Clock #10: Like Frankenstein, It Stands Up

07-05-2011 01:17 AM by kenn | 2 comments »

I am up to the nerve wracking part of this build. I need to put some dados into the sides of the clock, but since both the sides and front/back are angled, the dados need to be angled. I’ve been thinking about how to do this since I started this project. Use a stack dado set and the table saw? Yeah, that would work, but I don’t think the cut will be as precise as I need it to be and the cut would register on the front edge of one side and the back edge of the other side. That...

Router Sled for Flattening End Grain Cutting Board

07-01-2011 06:04 PM by Mauricio | 9 comments »

I glued up a cutting board with a table saw that was not properly aligned. As a result I had a glue up that was relatively flat on one side but way out of whack on the other side. The flat side was a huge pain to flatten with my little Ryobi belt sander even with 40 Grit belts. The rough side needed about 1/8” of wood that needed to be removed over most of the board. This is no joke with hard maple. It would have taken hours. My lumber dealer referred me to a cabinet shop that...

My First Router Table #2: The Router Table Carcass

06-28-2011 02:43 AM by Dave | 3 comments »

With a design in mind I bought a couple sheets of 4×8 Birch Plywood and got to work. I don’t have pictures of this part of the process, but the first thing I did was to lay out each piece of the carcass on a 4×8 rectangle in Sketchup so I could get check what’d fit and make sure my grain was all pointing in the right direction (at that point I was thinking I might stain the cabinet). I transferred those measurements to the actual plywood sheets. When I marked things...

My First Router Table #1: The Design

06-27-2011 02:00 AM by Dave | 5 comments »

After a year-and-a-half of woodworking I decided I needed a router table of my own. There are a lot of great examples on this site and they inspired me. All you have to do is browse my favorites to see a few of them. This router cabinet has a lot of firsts for me. I’m using it as both a learning experience and a prototype to convince my wife that I can build something that doesn’t look like I did it in high-school shop class. That’s why you’ll see a bit of over-k...

My First Bastone Walnut Burl!

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!

Rogue Fine Living #3: Bed of Power

12-22-2011 10:56 AM by Rogue | 0 comments »

In this world of 4gs, Ipads, and Jpegs, we have more power than ever before. Never has it been so easy for an artist to share their work regardless of distance. I can contact a customer hundereds or even thousands of mile away. We can design an original piece via email, and I can have it delivered to their door without the client having to leave the comfort of their home. Wow! Sure beats the heck out to the old days. In Renaissance times, if the King of France wanted you to carve a sculpture...
