So here’s the dilemma for the router, how to hold it in… I found the standard base way more friendly than the plunge base, but the plunge base is spring loaded, so I’m not sticking that in upside down. This means the base has gotta come out real easy. Sloppy drilled holes with aluminum pins act as hinges for the plywood support arms. The theory checks out and holds it solid while clamped like this, but it needs a little something more to keep it up. Here is the wa...
This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…

My daughter asked me to make her a small, narrow table to fit in front of her window to hold some potted plants. So the mandolin project is on hold for a few weeks. I have lots of red oak left over from my last project, (I try to buy more than I need). I do not have final dimensions yet but I know it will be about 30” wide, 30” high and 9”-12” deep. Here is my simple guide. I know some members of this forum don’t like biscuit joints. I find them useful. I o...
Butterfly Mortises I know it has been a while but I am finally back to my table build. The top of the table has 20 butterflies mortised into the top. In the original piece, these went all the way through the top and may have actually helped to hold the top together, but it is more likely that they were probably just decorative, as Barnsley has used them in several pieces. My friends all warned me that it would be much better to just rout a quarter inch deep or so, as going through ...
