My New Router Table #1: First Go at Sketchup, what a cool program!

11-04-2007 07:44 PM by Blake | 13 comments »

I have always liked CAD programs but have used them very little. I was an engineering major for a short time in college and took a few technical drawing classes, which I loved. I always thought it would be neat to own some sort of CAD program but never bought one. I think it is great that Google now offers one for free! I had never heard of Sketchup before I found LumberJocks. Anyway, I am building a new router table for my Incra fence+positioner, so I thought I would give it a go. The pro...

Wood Whisperer Out Feed Table #1: Inspiration, Research, and SketchUp Drawing

11-29-2009 06:13 AM by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

Well I have been so focused on getting my new old Unisaw tweaked and settled in it’s new home I forgot that I need some essentials for it’s operation. I wanted to fire it up and try and cut some big slabs of birch butcher block to test its power, but I realized one thing…they are big pieces and I don’t have an out feed table! So, basically I cant cut anything bigger than 10 inches…and what fun is that? So I was browsing through the projects and came upon this pro...

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...

Work(shop) in Progress #5: Drill Press Table

03-17-2009 04:08 PM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

I cannot take full credit for this, as this is an upgrade I’ve made to my old drill press table with an idea I’ve seen on Woodscrap’s workshop page. My original table was just 3/4” birch plywood, which was too thin, and when I installed the t-tracks in it, the slot I routed left the plywood useless as there wasnt enough material left to keep it sturdy, and not enough material for the screws to hold into. The new table is 3/4” birch ply laminated with hardboard...

Sketchup Models of Shop Furniture for a Small Shop #1: Mobile Shelves, Expandable Assembly Table and Materials Cart

05-06-2009 03:40 AM by Jack Barnhill | 10 comments »

I have a small shop, about 200SF. It’s not as small as it once was, about 90SF, and it’s not as big as what I hope to have some day, about 600SF. To keep from climbing over things and make it easier to move things around to accomdate the operation of the moment, I thought I would adopt the “everything on wheels” strategy and double up what tools I could in single cabinets. So, to make sure that I had the right designs and that everything would fit in the shop and ...

Router Table #1: Design ideas, need some feedback

02-18-2009 09:44 PM by PurpLev | 43 comments »

OK, so yeah – another blog about a router table, but since I’m going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I’ve had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2 1/4hp). It had the misfurtune of being on the floor when my basement was flooded a couple of years ago, so that top was ruined. I since have been planning to replace it with a shop-built version, and make a full enclosed ...

Cherry Refreshment Table #1: Breadboard Ends and Tusk Tenons

02-02-2014 06:40 AM by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...

A glass top table with opposing arches

06-05-2008 01:46 AM by John Fry | 16 comments »

I call this the “Opposing Arches” table. This commissioned glass top display table, or buffet, is 50” wide at the base, 14” deep and 29” tall. It supports a piece of glass that is ¾” thick by 18” by 66”. The construction is shop sawn zebrawood veneers, laminated on two layers of 1/8” poplar bending ply, on a curved torsion box inner core. The curved members are then framed in sold quarter sawn sapelli. The divider box is shop sawn veneer, cut from a very fine grained piece of Macassar...

Walnut Coffee Table Construction

05-11-2008 02:16 AM by Woodhacker | 13 comments »

When I returned to woodworking several years ago my nephew had been talking about a particular style of “coffee” table he’d seen online somewhere and was describing it to me. Since he’d just announced plans to marry, I told him I’d make him, and his fiancée, the table as a wedding gift. He showed me some online photos of the table, which I used as the basic, general design plan. The joinery I chose is original but the style was taken from the photos. This piece is the result: ...

Router Table #8: Insert an Insert an Insert an Insert an....

01-11-2010 01:08 AM by PurpLev | 15 comments »

OK. I caved in and bought an Incra Insert for the router table after they posted it back in stock. It’s the 3/8” phenolic plate that is their ‘old’ design. the opening for the router is 3 3/8” as opposed to the new Aluminum plate which are 3 5/8”. also it’s not as mechanical capable as the aluminum plates, but for $35 it’s within my budget. and still a very good plate. what I really like about the Incras is their MagnaLock plate inserts which sn...
