A few more shop tools I made. First is the router table, I used 2 layers of 3/4”mdf topped with 1/4” diamond plate aluminum which i turned upside down and polished the back side.
The second is my pen press for putting ink pens together. I used some left over red oak. The lever handle is some tubing from an old crutch.
