Question: Router Table Building Materials

610 days ago by Jason Watts | 6 comments »

Hello tool making veterans! I am building a combination router table and table saw station. For all of you who already have router tables, what is the best table top and fence material to use? I found a router table plan from 1985, and the builder did the following: top layer – plastic laminatesecond layer – 1/8” hard boardmiddle layer – 3/4” hardwood plywoodfourth layer – 1/8” hard boardlast layer – plastic laminate Sounds flat, smoo...

Back Burner projects

1831 days ago by Demowen | 1 comment »

Howdy everyone, I thought I’d post a few projects that I’ve had to put on the back burner for a while. The first one is on the back burner simply because I’m not sure what to do with it! If you folks have any ideas on what to do with it, I’d love to hear it! This is a solid oak hand hewn barn beam that is about 5 or so feet tall. I don’t want to make a bench out of it. I think it should be a centerpiece someday. I’d make a manltle but I don’t ...

Shop in the Sky #4: FINALLY got the walls up!

971 days ago by EROCK | 5 comments »

I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!

Fun with Router Bits

225 days ago by Kean | 7 comments »

I’ve been buying my router bits from MLCS for years and never had a problem with one. Until today, that is. Received in the mail today a solid carbide pattern routing bit. Mounted it in the router table and started to do the finish work on the guide holes in the cheese press I’m building. All was going well, then the bit suddenly caught a little and made an odd noise. Slap the emergency stop, check the setup, can’t find anything wrong. Start it back up and continue working. ...

Extremely Average #30: Henry Wood Detective Agency: Monday Morning

1538 days ago by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Sunday had been relaxing. Henry spent the day finishing his dado jig for his router. He was starting to get comfortable using the router and was able to create a straight edge, then from that, square up the jig. He could hardly believe it when he put the square on each corner and they were all at 90 degrees. What a rush. After he finished the jig and photographed it for posterity he relaxed a bit and bought a new case journal. He jotted down a few of his thoughts. Jan 2, 1955...

Knitting box #7: Box divider and bottom

1781 days ago by Luke | 2 comments »

So here I have the drawer pieces all laid out and routed the groove in the bottom of them for the slide in solid panel 1/8” maple that I am going to use. I was trying to decide on solid or ply and thought that it would look better with the solid plus I don’t have any maple ply and I have plenty of the maple solid. I had to make a trip to get the bit as my standard bit set didn’t have one that small (1/8”). I set up a couple of stops on my router table and cut the groov...

Updating the shop #2: Bench Completed

1131 days ago by mrg | 5 comments »

So this past weekend I was able to complete the workbench with the help of my wife. I found that drilling holes perfectly straight with a hand drill is not as easy as one may think. I had to re-drill the holes in the legs slightly larger to make up for my inaccuracy. My bench top drill press is just a little small to be able to drill thru a 4×4. It worked great to do the recesses for the nuts to go on the rods. After altering the legs we were able to assemble the bench pretty easily....

Works in Progress #1: Clockwork

1397 days ago by tyskkvinna | 7 comments »

As I have mentioned in a few places, I am in the middle of moving my workplace. Which is where my shop is. It’s going to be at LEAST another month before I get to unpack, maybe more. Things are in an annoying limbo. I went down to the old place today to bang out a few things. I had more ideas in mind but they have to wait. Humidity and I are having a raging battle and I’m on the loosing side of the war. Sigh. But, I had a stack of designs I had cut earlier that needed some b...
