Router Table Cabinet

09-24-2009 11:06 AM by 559dustdesigns | 26 comments »

This is a router table I’m working on for my shop. I was able to incorporate most the features I needed and plan to use it often. It isn’t finished but most the major parts are in place. I purchased the Incra twin linear, router table top, woodpeckers router lift and the porter cable 7518 motor from Woodpeckers Inc back in 2002 or 2003. Finally, she’s in working order. Since the last post I was able to complete the rear ...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

QUADRANT HINGE INSTALLATION

06-20-2011 01:02 AM by Jake Brain | 21 comments »

I spent a lot of time looking on the internet for a Jig or fixture to use to install a set of quadrant hinges. The quadrant hinge is a complicated-looking L-shaped hinge that is use in the jewelry boxes that I make. It helps to remember that a quadrant hinge is simply a butt hinge with integral lid stay or stop.The arms of the hinge extend along the sides of the lid and base of the box and the internal stop bar extends from and recesses into a mortise in the box wall and lid. The jewelry box ...

"Art Box" Tutorial #9: It all hinges on this.

07-17-2009 03:53 PM by Andy | 8 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is where you need to decide how you want to open your box. I mentioned at the outset about some of the different boxes I have made and how they hinge differently from one another. All are good, but you may have a preference in style or it may be your ability that decides for you. The pin hinge is what we will mainly be focusing on and was used on this box. Chapter 10 will discuss this style. The Deco box uses a standard brass butt hinge with a stop stra...

Tips and Techiques #2: The Somewhat Invisible Hinge Tutorial

03-05-2015 03:49 AM by Jerry | 27 comments »

Okay, I was asked to post a how to for the, I guess I’ll start calling it “vanishing” hinge, since it’s not completely invisible. Anyway I struggled with posting this tutorial, because in this instance things went badly, but I think it’s just as important to publish the mistakes as the successes, because that way whoever reads this can see where the pitfalls are. So in the spirit of full disclosure, here goes. Okay, this tutorial is for 1/2” wood and dow...

Routed Out Serving Tray

11-26-2012 03:25 PM by ~Julie~ | 15 comments »

I decided to use some of my wood stock to make some trays. I started with a piece of wood that I needed help identifying and had help from fellow lumberjocks to do that. It turned out it was birch which I planed down and cut to the size of 25” long x 7 1/2” wide x 13/16” thick: For 3” at each end, on the underside of the piece, I routed out a depth of 5/16” using a bowl bit: (This was cleaned up afterwards with a sander.) Here you can see the profile ...
