I ordered the following equipment from Incremental Tool on Jan 31st, they finally got the whole shipment together and shipped it today. (Well they said they shipped it, UPS does not have it in their hands yet.) I will soon have a bunch of new toys to do a review on and will start setting up my shop. Pictures will follow. LS25WFNCSYS INCRA LS Super System – 25” Range [Options:1/32” Imperial Scales] IG32 INCRA Gauge 605-WHITESIDE 6-Piece INCRA Joinery Router Bit Set M...
Used 5/8” mdf for grid and 1/2” for skins Cleaned the glue off the sides and flush trimmed the skins. Screwed hard board on top and cut with jigsaw. ...
As usual, no project ever goes the way I envision it. Even projects that I design 1st tend to take a left turn at some point. And so it is that I have hit that left turn in this project. With the top finished and ready to be cut for the miter track and the router opening I was left with trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to do and whether or not I wanted an insert plate. Two things happened which are going to change the direction of this project a little bit. The 1st was finall...
I need a new router table. I had made my first one but realized it was not the strongest design and needed a lot of improvements and additions. It was a basic four legged table with aprons and a small crosspiece between the legs near the bottom. I don’t have a photo because I’ve already taken it apart. The old table had aprons that fit with tenons into the four legs’ mortises. Because of the amount of stress the table received from being dragged around the shop (no ca...
I woke up this morning and tried to get some work done before the Super Bowl (Go Packers!). I trimmed the extra laminate and proceeded to bond the second face. Here is the top with sticks on it so I can position the laminate above it without gluing it in the wrong place: Then I placed the laminate on the sticks and got it positioned so there is equal amounts of overhang all the way around: Then I pull out the sticks working out from the middle and press the laminate down: Once agai...
The top came out pretty flat. I trimmed it to size on the table saw and I realized it’s time to make a panel sled! The sides of the top are not perfectly square but they don’t really need to be for this project, however, I am going to build a sled before the next project that uses panels this size so I can cut them accurately. I cut the top undersized so I could add some maple edges. The edge is cut from 3/4” thick boards and after they are bonded on, the top will be sli...
Hello fellow woodworkers, I was messing around in the woodshop with my BIG BOSCH ROUTER and just thinking about how useful it can be. It’s amazing to me how you can put just about any edge on a piece of wood and give that nice or unique look. It’s that uniqueness people are looking for in a project no matter what type it is. I’ve read many books and articles on routing but haven’t yet tried everything there is to accomplish with a router. I’m learning slo...
I started the project by working on the base. It will have decorative blocks at all the corners and at the ends of the feet. The ones at the ends of the feet will be rounded. The wood I am using for this is 16/4 mahogany it was about 11 inches wide and a little over a foot long. 1. My jointer will only handle 8 inches so I had to plane sides flat and then join one at 90°. 2. Then cut to pieces 3 inches wide off of the blank with the table saw. 3. I used a number 4 smoothing plane...
Taken longer than expected..due to the additional steps to each of these doors…and the fact that I keep putting it off… sidetracked with other projects.. As you can see all the mortices and tenons have been cut…[using the Leight FMT] I have also cut the Chamfers on the inside edges of the door frames… this was done with a piloted chamfering router bit while the frames were clamped together… You will also notice that I have taken the time and effort to ma...
Greeting to anyone that is reading. It has been a long week. Due to a major incident at work I got very little time in the shop this week. I did however manage to demo an entire room at work so maybe that will count as some extra time. I did get enough time to complete what I was working on on Sunday when I got the call from work. A coworker had this little Chrstmas type tree that she liked to display, unfortunatly she had bumped into it and knocked it over knocking it off of the base. The or...
