Harry's new router table and fence design #2: Adjustable router table fence

05-20-2012 01:43 PM by TheHarr | 14 comments »

My earlier router table fences lacked control. I would tap one side and the other would move. Tapping is an inexact way to move something in very small increments. I’ve hit on a very inexpensive, easy to make, router adjustment system that works well. It can quickly, and easily, zero in on precise fence adjustments. This fence is attached to the table using four bolts that can be set up and removed in just a couple of minutes. So less talking and more photos; thanks to my neighbor...

Thanks for reading.

Woodworking Bench #4: A Perfectly Flat Top

11-12-2009 06:12 AM by DocK16 | 14 comments »

Moving along with the woodworking bench. The previous blog showed the final glue up of the laminated top. even planing the sections before gluing didn’t lead to a perfectly flat top. So that leads to the 64 million dollar question, how do we get it flat. Since I don’t have 40 inch wide planer or sander I guess we’ll have to look at other options. One method is to cross plane it with a fore plane or jointer plane (a very long bench plane). As I don’t have a bench...

Router Table #2: The Motor's In - Triton 3.25hp TRC001 1/2" Precision Router

12-15-2009 05:39 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

It really started a while back, I got hooked on the idea of a router lift for the table after seeing the Incra Router lift with the magnetic inserts. after that the obsession was fed by finding Woodpeckers’ router lifts with the quick release mechanism which allows for quick lift of the router to rough positioning, and for pulling it all the way up for over the table bit change. then came the Woodpeckers PRL-V2 (also rebranded by Incra with their magnetic inserts, and recently also r...

Quarter Round Display Shelf #2: Making the Quarter Round Shelves

04-20-2009 03:24 AM by sIKE | 3 comments »

I have been working on the overall project for the last several weeks. The panels and shelves glue ups are done and the initial sanding is done. Next up on the list was to turn the shelves from squares to quarter rounds. So it was time to stop and start making the jigs needed for the project. The Rounding Jig and The Quarter Rounding Sled, the Sliding Dovetail Socket jig, and the router fence for the Pins. The Rounding Jig is based upon Norms, however my little 9” BS was not up to th...

New experiences #2: Cutting curves with a router

10-01-2010 12:26 AM by albachippie | 1 comment »

For the project I am currently working on, I required a perfect curve for the front of a desk and for two shelves. Because the top material is Melamine Faced Chipboard, I decided to strengthen this by using construction grade ply. This gave me a good practice material to get the curve right, before cutting the MFC, which is 3 times the price of ply! Although I own two routers, I have never really used them to cut. I was looking through Fine Woodworking website and came across a build off vide...

My New Router Table #1: First Go at Sketchup, what a cool program!

11-04-2007 07:44 PM by Blake | 13 comments »

I have always liked CAD programs but have used them very little. I was an engineering major for a short time in college and took a few technical drawing classes, which I loved. I always thought it would be neat to own some sort of CAD program but never bought one. I think it is great that Google now offers one for free! I had never heard of Sketchup before I found LumberJocks. Anyway, I am building a new router table for my Incra fence+positioner, so I thought I would give it a go. The pro...

One Nutty, Inexpensive Router Lift

05-17-2012 02:13 PM by DeLayne Peck | 19 comments »

Ok, I am new here and I’ll take risk. Thought I would share an innovation that amuses me and works well enough. I have looked at router lifts for my Craiglist router table. Ouch, the cost. Especially, when other equipment is high on the lust list. Then, a choir hit a high note and this wacky router lift inspiration – a labratory scissor jack. Yup. They are compact, 6’’ x 6” top and bottom plates, 10” maximum lift height. Cost? Less than $30 a...
