My friend, Travis Piper, showed me this table he has had since he was a kid; it’s thought to be from the 1930s. It’s very unique the way it folds up when picked up in the middle. I really like the design, shaker-esque in nature. I modeled it in Sketchup. My only change was to the skirt, adding an arch, instead of the mild scallopy profile that is on the original. My rendering’s metal support rails are a bit too slivery; I think I would make them a flat black, if I were to ma...
This saw was my dad’s pride and joy. It a B&D DeWalt R1350 built in 1968. The family gave it and many other woodworking tools to me when he died several years ago. I tuned it up and put a simple table on it back then (2009.) I reassembled and built wheels on the stand. Some say don’t use WD40 – use liquid graffite. After I got all done, I read another book the said, never use liquid graffite – ONLY use WD40. The sign “2nd table” I scraped...
This was supposed to be part #2 but it’s #1. See #2 for the back story on my router table. The first improvement to my router table was the fence. I have a bunch of mdf that’s been in the shop for years so that’s what I used. I know, not the best material for a project like this. But, my fence was a hodgepodge of ideas and I built it with no plans and just guessed at the measurements. IF it doesn’t hold up at least I’ll have a better idea of what I’...
Dang, I have parts 1 and 2 reversed in the blog. Sorry, but this was my first time trying to use the blog. I’ve been cleaning, reorganizing and rearranging my shop lately. The latest task has been to update my router table. I thought I’d start this blog with what I’ve been using. This was built approximately 9 years ago and has served reasonably well. I had acquired several metal cabinets from a copy machine company and started with one of those. I mounted it ...
Mesquite Slabs 10/4 thick, 24-36” wide, 17’ Long. Would make great conferance table or bar top. Check out the figure in these!!

Use up a few scraps and the rest of the 10” table saw blade for this easy made marking knife. Check the video out HERE! As always, please subscribe!
Next, I had to come up with a new insert for the table. The saw came with a plywood table over the existing cast iron table, so there was no insert. I tried to buy an insert, but they do not seem to be made any longer for this saw. I had a piece of cutting board lying around the shop that I failed in making a TS insert in the past. I got out a circle cutter (the fly style cutter type) and cut out the shape on my drill press fairly easily. I then set up my router to cut off material to pr...
Well, I got the top of the router table done. The next step is to make the 3 drawers that go in the cabinet. Shown in the photo is my set up for milling the rabbets and dados in the drawer pieces. I temporarily put the sacrificial fence from my table saw on the table saw fence to use with the router. The last part of this project before painting will be to make a proper router fence. It will still attach to the table saw rip fence, but will have a few bells and whistles. [Edit] I mi...
