Well, I guess this really is not complete but I had to get these pics out of the camera b 4 I could take more of the completed project. This is a project I s’pose you could say I started in 1973! I made a walnut and oak cutting board for my mother for Christmas that year, in high school woodshop. Since then, it had warped a bit and had a 3/16 layer of pizza grease and beer on it. So, I scraped it down, cut it into 3 pieces and surfaced it smooth and square via jointer and thickness planer. Then, after I glued it back together, my buddy Dan Pleska came to the rescue once again with his wide sander. I took a “Stanley” L bracket and cut it in half, mortised it into the edges of the router plate recess to keep the plunger things from tearing out the wood as i remove it. It has 4 coats of poly on top, 3 on the sides and 2 on the bottom. I bought Norm’s router table plan just to make the fence for it and adapted it to bolt to my TS fence. And, since I had the plan I figured I might as well build the base cab too. I’ll post it as a seperate project.
-- I think of Jack Nicholson as the Joker in Batman when he says "Where does he get those wonderful toys" and ask WHERE DO U GUYS GET ALL THAT WONDERFUL WOOD?
