My New Router Table #5: Doors and Drawers

11-15-2007 03:03 AM by Blake | 8 comments »

I would have waited until I made more progress until posting this next one, but since I have been stuck in bed with the flue for three days (and I am good for nothin’ in the shop) I may as well post what I’ve got. The following was done before I got sick. I am keeping the joinery as simple as possible on this project. I want it to look nice but it mostly needs to be functional. So I used simple grooved “style and rails” for the doors and drawer fronts, with more of ...

Entry Table Specs

11-14-2007 04:58 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 27 comments »

Friends With Benefits… OK guys it’s not what you think. But the benefit here are specs for the entry table that I made. One of the LJ brothers asked if he could build the entry table as a gift and I thought I would share it with everyone. I am keeping his identity secret lest I give him away to someone that he would be intending to surprise. In The Rough… These are not professionally drawn plans, but they will do. This is a simple project and all the specs are t...

Butcher Block Table #2: Coming Together

11-12-2007 01:34 AM by cckeele | 12 comments »

So far so good. I ran into a couple hickups here and there but im still on target. About now I am wishing I had a drum sander, Jointer and a drill press. Please Santa come soon! These things probably would have made this venture much easier, but with a lil elbow grease and some buckets of sweat I have been able to get most of the hard work done. On to the highlights… Im still sanding, yeah, yeah, yeah….. Got the table base built up and doing a dry fit on the top. I bought th...

New Shop Toy!!!

11-11-2007 08:13 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 8 comments »

Well, I finally did it. I have been scrimping and saving for a table saw for some time now. After cutting the lid off of my trinket box with my friends cheap craftsman portable table saw, I realized that I really needed to invest in a nice one. So, here is what I got: I’m not sure if it’ll make me a better woodworker, but it sure can’t hurt! :-) Every Ridgid product I’ve purchase has been outstanding so far, and with the Lifetime Limited, I just don’...

Machine and Table Heights

11-09-2007 07:58 PM by Blake | 14 comments »

I recently built a router table and when I was taking measurements around the shop to determine how tall to make it I realized something about my shop: my table saw is on blocks, my workbench is on blocks, my radial arm saw table is jacked up to about chest hight on the highest adjustment of an extendable stand… Seems that without ever thinking about it I made all my surfaces taller than average. But here’s the thing: I’m only 5’8”. I am not really very tall. ...

My New Router Table #4: Table top and drawer slides

11-09-2007 08:14 AM by Blake | 12 comments »

More progress on the router table… I installed the drawer slides today. This is only because I intend wanted to put the table top on and it was hard enough to do with the cabinet face already on. I really should have put the drawer slides in first. It took me forever and I had to bend down through the cabinet or reach through the drawer openings to precisely mark, measure, drill and screw the slides in place. I actually intend to make the drawers later on, but I had to put the sli...

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...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #15: Sawstop

11-05-2007 02:57 PM by MsDebbieP | 27 comments »

Last month, while at the Woodstock Wood Show I had the opportunity to check out the SawStop table saw and chat with Eric Gewiss, the Marketing Manager. The HistorySteve Gass, Ph.D., a woodworker himself, invented the SawStop technology in 2000. Mr. Gass met with existing manufacturers to have them include his SawStop in their product lines, but did not have any success. After a couple of years of trying, he, along with David Fulmer and David Fanning, built their own table saw and in 2004 ...

My New Router Table #2: ...A Pile of Potential

11-04-2007 11:10 PM by Blake | 14 comments »

This is the exciting start of my new “proper” router table: Pile of wood… I had the lumber yard cut my plywood to size since it is difficult/impossible to maneuver a full sheet in my shop. I assembled the carcass with biscuits.
