In this episode I go over some stuff about my router table.
So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!
So to start with. The miter slots on my saw were shallow from routing the table top flat. I finally decided last night to setup my incra 1000hd for this saw, but in order to do that, I needed to rout the right slot deeper. Ill get around to the left eventually, but the right slot will pretty much be the incra’s new home. I used the same 10$ ryobi router and HF router speed control I used on the top, and just used the fence as a guide. I started with a 1/4” straight bit an...
Hello all, check out my latest video Elegant Lamp Build Pt.1 on YouTube. Pt. 2 will be released next week. The idea came from FW magazine issue 222. The article was written by Christian Becksvoort. My lamp was built using Birdseye Maple. This was a fun project to make. Hope you enjoy the video. Don’t forget to Like, Share, Comment, and Subscribe.

I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...
Greetings everyone, As some of you may know, my videos/templates are now carried by Woodcraft (woHoo!): What you may NOT know is that they have been significantly discounted from my original prices. So, of course, I lowered the prices on my website as well. Now everyone can save some bux and have a chance to build one of these pieces for themselves. In addition, if you visit the Woodcraft website here, all of the router bits (which are now made by Whiteside) needed for some of the ...
The frame is easy to make out of pine, fir or any soft wood. We want to make it look precision yet old at the same time. The hardest part is convincing the sun to age your project for you 2000 years in about a few days time. The sun owed me for a few sunburns soooo… Just kidding, we’ll get to the aging part later.I remembered a frame I had seen at the museum in grade school. I jumped in my truck that weekend and went to the museum to look at ancient lacquered furniture. I took not...
After getting the switch installed in the top “drawer” area, I needed then to make two drawers below that, on the left hand side. I had two drawers that were part of an old entertainment unit that we threw out. I kept some parts including two drawers as well as drawer slides. The drawers were too wide for my router table: So, I taped the drawer slides into the cabinet and measured the width I would need for my drawers to fit: Then I cut the drawer, allowing for the side ...

I decided to go back and redo the exterior walls. I wanted to learn how to use my router anyways so I thought I should start here. I am not sure whats its call but I make grooves for the shelving units to fit into as well as the front face of the case. I was originally just going to have it set in place and clasp onto the front but thought it would look nice if it had a channel to rest into. The router works great and I think i got the hang of it. So far everything is coming out much nicer th...
