I’ve been able to put a nice Oak counter top over my new dishwasher. I routed the edges of the front and back splash to best fit my counter curvature. After some nice dark stain and a few coats of Poly it didn’t come out half bad.

Hi JR, I think it came out great, the grain patter is beautiful and the routed edge just makes it looks like it belongs. Nice job.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

Thanks everyone; it was fun and has inspired me to finish my home made router table. Very basic but much easier that trying to route clean edges free hand. I’ll post some pics when I’m finished. I’m working on the bit guard and the dust collector.

Have your say...
