It’s been a while since I started on this, but was busy with my new job. But the weather forced me back into action. We’re having an unseasonably warm spring. 8 inches of snow melted in a few days, then rain, and 50°-60° temps. And a huge amount of humidity. I went out in the garage the other day, and was terrified to see the pieces that I ad already glued down loose on the torsion box. The humidity had expanded them so much that they were popping loose, actually tearing the s...
Gang, Like a few of you, I bought the FWW “Editors Pick” Triton MOFOO1 2.25 HP Router for use in my router table. That was about 18 months ago. Despite light use, the lift mechanism quickly broke. Triton (now owned by HTC) was apologetic and helpful with replacement parts. The culprit is a NYLON (wow, what a dumb design choice) worm drive. The worm drive strips when you lift the router a few times—-because there is too much downward pressure on the router from ...
This is a video on how to set up and use the Loose Tenon and Mortise Jig I developed over the past few weeks. It is in three pieces. Part One Part Two Part Three I made two project entries: First One - pre-tested and the Second One - post-tested
I’m for the most part done with this project. For those of you that asked about the router table track I’m putting that off until I invest in a Woodpecker Router Lift which might require me to modify my table for a larger plate. I have updated photos on my project link. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27579
So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!
Right now, i am in the process of making a candle holder for my wife. I am using some scrap oak for the legs, and quite possibly some maple for the tops and sides. I have gotten the legs cut and sanded, but need to get the material for the tops and sides. I will post pictures as soon as I finish cutiing the rest of it out and get it assembled. Sorry been so long……..... finished the project and gave it to my wife for her birthday……. she took it to work and I forgot to take pictu...
The whole point of devoting my early woodworking days to building stuff for woodworking is to learn. Today, while reading the latest issue of shop notes, I learned that the router table top, which I am building, is a laminated top. I guess I had always thought that laminated only applied to thin strips glued together. I don’t know why I assumed there was some sort of arbitrary thickness requirement. Now I know.The seven sets of laminated sections have become three. The middle section...
There’s no such thing.! You need to buy the kit for the larger Triton router and then call HTC (new Triton owner) and ask them for the adapter bushing that lets you not have to mount the oversized base plate that comes with the guide kit. Don’t let them charge you for this. They shoud have provided it in the kit or, better yet, make a kit that’s designed for the 2 1/4 router. Just a nuisance. AND here’s another problem with the template guide setup in general: W...
I have a Walnut table top I have put attached to the frame. What are your thoughts for a finish, what should I use. I don’t want to worry about water spots or something warm being put on it and the finish peeling up. This is really far out of my league I have never built anything like this I just need some great advice please!!!![IMG]http://i955.photobucket.com/albums/ae37/nattnaifeh/table2.jpg[/IMG]http://i955.photobucket.com/albums/ae37/nattnaifeh/table2.jpg
I’ve uploaded instructions for how to use the router jig in my project section. Enjoy. (And let me know if you reckon you could improve it.) instructions @ theloveofwood
