« Part 25: How to clamp work to the table. Part 26 of Torque Workcentre at work.. series Part 27: And Repairs Too.... »

In this video you will see Aaron route a box from one piece of timber… MDF in this case…Video removed due to WHS issues… will be reposted when these issues have be addressed.

Very simple … just route 4 grooves with a 45 degree V-bit cut the 4 corner pieces out with a sharp utility knife and fold up.. a little glue and two clamps… voile.

Funny this showed up now Larry. I just posted a blog myself about the Torque minutes ago.

Thanks for this. Always interesting.

being a ratbag again, this actually didn’t utilize any of the TWC. this technique can be done on a router table even more easily, i would say.

Fun Larry. It’s handy to have a little box like that to keep the severed fingers in! LOL

To answer Moshe… this vid is to show that the Torque does not have to be used in the X and Y axis.
You do not have to move the router… It can be locked and the material passed under…
Now that is versatile…

You are becoming a master filmaker you should start making crockadile dundee ripoffs, with you as the main character of course. Nice film, nice box making idea. Larry Speilberg.

very cool. and I agree with Topamax… especially for demo videos – you might want to incorporate some push blocks/sticks – I felt uncomfortable with the guy having his fingers so close to a spinning cutter.
