Table Saw Extension / Router Table #4: Starting to take shape

315 days ago by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Today’s efforts went into building the router table insert onto which the router will be mounted. I laminated a piece of Luan to the 1/2 inch plywood to make it look nice. The underside of the plywood has been routed out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. I hope to create different throat inserts for when I have smaller work pieces. I also installed 3 lengths of 3/8 inch threaded rod with which the cabinet will be fastened to the table saw. That way I can remove it if I should wa...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #3: Working on the top

317 days ago by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I’m going to finish the top and install it before installing the drawers. It should be easier that way to get my hands inside, plus I always build the drawers last just in case my ideal measurements were not met. This wooden piece matches the profile of the edge on the table saw, allowing me to use the rip fence further away from the blade and also use the rip fence to hold my router fence. The piece will be attached on the edge of the router table top. Here is a better view of t...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #1: I Gots da Wood

323 days ago by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Because I am often frustrated by the limitations of my small table saw, I decided to put this project on the front burner. Today I drove up to a friend’s house to rescue him from being buried under too much wood. I came away with some 1/2 inch plywood less than 2 feet square and a few other goodies for future use. Then I headed down to my big box store and bought some hardware and a sheet of 1/2 inch plywood. I had it cut in quarters so that it would fit in my car. (Last time I asked...

Slab Table #1: Slab Table......pt 1

344 days ago by HickoryHill | 0 comments »

The sister company to where I work is an arborist service, tree removals (sometimes), pruning, caring, fertilizing, risk management, etc. So I tend to get one of the first cracks at stuff that comes in. I was out looking at other logs they had brought in and noticed this guy sitting there. Fortunately it has just rained or else I would of missed it. The cross cut of the tree is what caught my eye. From a Maple tree that was starting to decay. Along the outer edge is some spalting too. ...

Ribbon Display End Table #1: Horse Ribbon Display End Table

434 days ago by SouthFloridaSun | 0 comments »

My fiancee has been wanting a way to elegantly display her horse ribbons in the house. One idea she liked was the Ribbon box seen here http://www.mcguinnfarms.com/office_p1.html# This in all honesty is just a short stool with a box on it. I wanted to make something more useful but serving the same purpose. So my idea is an end table with glass sides framed in wood with a glass top also framed in wood. I decided on Red Oak for all the wood including the legs and the frames. I picked up 2×...

Just for Fun #3: Checker Board Coffee Table

440 days ago by ScottShaeffer | 2 comments »

I’m working on this coffee table as a wedding gift for my cousin and his wife-to-be. I’m a log furniture maker so there are a lot of techniques I haven’t been introduced to until I started working with fellow Lumber Jock, Kris Williams. Kris makes fine rustic furniture so I’ve been quite fascinated by some of the ways he does things and decided to start playing around with some of it. Of course, I don’t have all the machines Kris has so I require his help for a f...
