A few hours “work” in the garage this afternoon.
First, I finished up my simple tenoning jig. 3/4” plywood leftovers and a piece of 1”x2.” The pencil line on the face is the max blade height on my table saw. I dutifully placed all fasteners above that line.
Next, out of some more of the plywood, I made an insert for my Porter-Cable table saw (PCB220TS) to accomodate my Porter-Cable router (690). I put my tenoning jig to work to help cut the rabbits on the ends. Then I transfered the screw holes from my base-plate and drilled and counter-sunk for the screws. A hole saw for the center then I fastened the base to the underside. I found I didn’t need any relief to allow the bits to fully clear the top of the table. I did have to notch one corner a bit to help it clear a screw on the inside of the opening where it sits.
Then I decided to test it out. I soon discovered using a feather board is quite helpful in keeping the grooves straight. The last picture is a simple coin rack I made for my office. I’ll probably stain it tomorrow.
