Router Question...Recommendation

03-08-2009 06:15 AM by Matthew Archibald | 13 comments »

So I’m working on a box, just a small box and I’d planned on doing dovetails and the whole 9 yards. But my dads old craftsman router crapped out. In the next coming months i’m looking to pick up a more modern and sturdy router. The most bang for my buck. Honestly I don’t know much about this market. Do i go with a PorterCable router and just get the most amperage/hp router i can afford?? So yeah if anybody out there has a recommendation on a good soild router totally s...

Harbor Freight run...

05-12-2011 04:14 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

Took a Harbor Freight run in Hempstead, NY and in Harrisburg, PA. Bought a big pile of stuff. Finally found a HF with the Dovertail jig. $34 seems like a great deal. I’m sure it’s not a perfect jig, but hopefully it will be worthwhile.

Sweet Sweet Digital Accuracy

03-11-2012 06:56 AM by Brad | 2 comments »

Last month as a condolence prize for turning 30 years old I received from my in-laws a few items from my Amazon “woodworking” wishlist. I’ll admit i sorta milked this whole turning 30 thing because my friends and family really did some damage to my woodworking wish list (sadly no sawstop). So today I’m reviewing the Wixey Mini Digital Height Gauge. These can be found at your local Rockler right now on sale for $20 so not a huge investment. Thanks for the battery Wi...

3 Strings CBG (cigar box guitar) #3: Tail and bridge

10-22-2012 06:27 PM by FreddyS | 4 comments »

Hi guys, this weekend I worked on the tail and the bridge:The tail got some planing and a shape routing, I didn’t liked a lot the first pattern in the headstock so I changed it, forgot to take pics but is the same shape as in the tail just flipped, now I really like it. Then I drilled the holes for the strings, you can see aluminum rivet heads in there, to protect the wood from the strings, will se how that works. Also I made the bridge with some spare tzalam (aka caribbean walnut...

Workbench Build #1: Workbench Build

02-22-2013 10:17 AM by RoadHogg | 11 comments »

I’ve worked with wood and been interested in woodworking since I was a child…some 40 years. Until now, I’ve never had the three things I needed to really explore that passion…time, space, money. To start off, I need a place to work so I built a simple workbench. I found these plans in Woodsmith magazine. The construction is simple, inexpensive and sturdy…just what I need.

Lee and Shelley's Wet Bar #4: Phase III Doors and Drawer Fronts

03-31-2014 07:16 PM by MT_Stringer | 5 comments »

With the face frames built, it was time to build the raised panel doors and the drawer fronts. I used the Freud rail and stile bit set to do the cope and stick profile cutting. Then I used a Freud raised panel bit to make the raised panels. I used a Bosch 1617 router in a router table, slowed it down to it’s slowest speed and made several passes until I got the final result I was looking for. The drawer fronts have flat panels made of maple ply. Gluing up two at a time. ...

I need your help.

11-14-2010 06:39 PM by nobuckle | 9 comments »

Okay, things are coming along with the router table project. The last thing that I worked on was making the insert plate for the router. I opted to make one because I don’t have the money to spend on a manufactured one. Besides, I hade some 1/4” aluminum plate that a friend gave me which worked out really well. Here is where I need your input. I need to know if I should make the diameter of the through hole the same size as the diameter of my largest router bit, in this case ...
