Very nice looking router table you have there! I really like the choice of wood for it. It says alot about the craftsman, when there is that much effort put into the tools.

Looks great, but I’d be afraid of scratching it!!

WOW, if you take that much care and time on your tools , can’t wait to see your projects coming up. Over the top man. I never treat myself that well.

The NYW design is a real workhorse, I have one myself. But this is by far one of the prettiest examples of the breed I have seen. I would be afraid to use it for fear of scratching it.

Nice job!

Any reason why the feathers are up?

I don’t remember exactly why I had the feathers up. I use them as stops in the up position, but I may have done it just for the picture.

That was going to be my first question …The featherboards are upside down…never thinking that you might be using them for stops…Great idea and you made me learn something just from seeing your project : ) Thank you and have a great weekend ! Did you stain the lower drawer fronts?
