My Router Journey #1: My first cut ever!

08-04-2013 10:27 PM by Choupinette | 7 comments »

My first cut ever with a router! Took me 3 hours to figure out how to put everything together and do all the adjustments, practice the cut with the tool powered off, overcome the heebie-jeebies, then … do it! I’m very pleased with the result (template not nicked, clean cut, no wood burn). Woo-hoo! I used a straight flush bit of 1 inch length and enclosed ball bearings.

Wall Hung Console #6: Getting closer

09-22-2009 07:53 PM by captkerk | 4 comments »

I’ve made a little progress over the last couple of days. The curved aprons are done gluing and are all trimmed up. The top has been flush trimmed and sanded again to even up the epoxy filler patches, but a few need to be redone. The three large brackets are cut to size, routed flush with their templates and belt sanded. They need some epoxy filler and they will be ready to receive mortises. I got started on the back board that connects the brackets and mounts the unit to the wall,...
