Pictured is an end table I made with my new Router Crafter. It is all Lowe’s pine. Presumably Fir. This was my first project with the Router Crafter and was a lot of fun to make.

My other half wants similar models for other sitting areas and I think I will dip into my short supply of oak and poplar for the next models. I think both wood types will router more “cleanly” but we’ll see.

My only real regret is the use of dowelling to secure the top shelf to the legs. I’d seen dowelling used this way before and thought it looked nice but mine looks like someone tried to fill in or cover a nail head with wood filler. For the bottom shelf I mortised out square holes and then put dowels in the bottom legs and drilled holed in the bottom of the top legs to fit (does that make sense?). Anyway, that worked great and I should have done something similar with the top. Oh well.

Finished with a mix of stains and sealed with rub-on poly.

thanks

Its’ only “new” to me. I bought it used on Craigslist. I don’t think it had ever actually been used though.

Thanks
