My New Router Table #3: Finishing Cabinet Assembly and Dust Collection

11-07-2007 09:09 PM by Blake | 14 comments »

This project is really coming together. That biscuit jointer really makes quick and easy work of cabinet assembly. I have never really gotten a chance to use it before. I ordered an Incra Magni-Lock router plate through Woodcraft. It seems to be on the slow boat. But hopefully it will come at about the time I need it. Anyway, more chronicles of the progress I made on my day off yesterday: Here is the cabinet fascia with half lap joinery, 3/4” x 2” Beechwood (the most inex...

Sharpening Router Bits

08-05-2010 08:31 PM by Karson | 19 comments »

Since the router bits are now clean, I might as well sharpen them. Yesterday I showed you how I clean saw blades, router bits and clean up the belt sander belts. Since I’ve got the router bits clean and I was ready to put them away I figured I might as well sharpen them. I use 3 in 1 oil with the sharpening tools on my router bits. I use Eze-lap diamond paddles for sharpening. Here is a place that carries them. They come individually, sets of three and sets of ...

Using a router to make the "Lazy Larry" #1: Making the "Lazy Larry" using a router and router jig.

06-19-2009 02:14 AM by Ampeater | 9 comments »

Degoose showed us how to make the jig that uses a bandsaw to make the spiral sections of his “Lazy Larry”. Well I made the jig, but my old small bandsaw just wasn’t up to the task. I wasn’t about to quit, so I decided to try to make a jig that I could use with my router. It took me awhile to figure it out (using Sketchup), but once I did, it was rather easy to make the jig. Here is how to make the jig. Picture 1. 1. Cut a 3/4” thick piece of MDF ...

Routed Sign Making #1: Routed 'Sign Making Class'

12-13-2011 04:51 AM by 3DBMe | 13 comments »

We’re going to use a Dremel router to make a sign with recessed lettering. I suggest barnwood because of the contrast between the weathered surface texture and ‘fresh cut’ letters. I also have enhanced the letters by burning (pyrography) the edges of the letters for increased readability. Of course you can scale up to larger routers if you chose. Stock: Barnwood 2”x10”x24” Suggested material and dimensions Safety: Goggles, F...

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 ...

Virtual Pinball Machine #2: The Lower Cabinet Build

01-25-2012 08:39 PM by milbert | 4 comments »

The build of the virtual pinball machine is coming right around. The lower part of the machine is mostly done with the exception of some button and ventilation holes will need to be added. Here are some pictures of the assembly… The hardest part of this cabinet for me was the miter cuts where the sides meet the front. I did it this way for aesthetic purposes since the cabinet would have no trim I don’t want to see the plywood edges. Here is a picture of the final...

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...
