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...

DIY Router Lift for Plunge Router #1: With Gears!

02-22-2013 04:10 AM by Lumberpunk | 9 comments »

Ok I’ve been really wanting some sort of router lift for a while now, my Freud FT2200VCE is REALLY slow to adjust under the table, the Router Raizer get mixed reviews and the Unilift seem to be running in the $700 range + long wait time to get one (and I would buy a lathe if I had that much lying around). Seems like most of the DIY router lifts are for fixed base routers or pretty much require you to permanently install your plunge router under the table. As it’s my only router th...

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

05-20-2012 01:43 PM by TheHarr | 8 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...

Secret Compartment Toy Box #3: More Progress

08-28-2009 06:54 AM by John M | 9 comments »

Time to make the lid. Easy enough, I made it overlap about a half inch on each side (mostly dictated based on the size of the project panels that I used) and 1.5” on the front for the lifting of the lid. I should comment here on the project panels issue. I bought the standard project pine panels for this project at Home Depot and I felt a bit guilty about it. I told my fiancee when I bought them that I felt like I was “cheating” and that buying the pre assembled pane...

EZ Mitre #1: Update - Using router bits

05-15-2011 08:17 PM by BritBoxmaker | 12 comments »

Since the original EZ mitre blog there have been variations added. To formalise the adding of new and/or additional methods to the technique I will add updates for now and re-release the whole thing if I ever get time. The main reason for this update is, as has often been asked, ‘can this technique be done using a table mounted router and ‘v’ groove bit ?’ Up until now I have been reticent to suggest this but I have just this week discovered router bits that are up ...

Hello Fellow Lumberjocks! Welcome to my very first attempt at a blog.

I truly enjoy the Lumberjock community because we are all made to feel as an equal participant of the group, regardless of our individual skill levels. An important part of my growth in the wood art is to work hard at improving my skills and learn valuable new techniques ...

Norms Router Cabinet #8: and Finally the Fence

04-09-2009 07:56 PM by sIKE | 10 comments »

I have had the cabinet completed for sometime now, and had the Incra Fence already. However it is not a general purpose fence, one that you can attach feather boards and such to. I need to be able to keep my work flat on the table for my current project (Sliding Dovetails) so I am now having to build this guy out. Having read about the complaints about the MDF swelling after a period of time I have decided to finish mine out with paint. I went to the BORG and grabbed a can of a off white spr...
