Oh man I barely have room in my 2-car garage, but it’s a dedicated woodworking shop, our trucks are outside vehicles now haha.

I’m jealous, this is awesome!

Looking forward to see how this turns out. I would build several of Matthias’ inventions but my garage is already full and my wife wants to park her car inside.

What do you think it cost you total (minus the router)?

  • Ben – don’t be jealous, it’s just a guy-toy, you know the drill lol…
  • Julian – I hear you on the garage thing, we gave up on the garage parking once we sold our Jeeps. She had a 4-dr JK Wrangler RUBICON and I had a 2-dr JK RUBICON I built myself for rock-crawling that cleared the garage top by 3/8” Haha…37” BOGGERS take up some room. She was scared of rock-crawling anyway, I loved it, we got tired of fixing mine, ditched them both and her Yukon and my crewcab do NOT fit in the garage anyway unless it was empty all the way up to the sheetrock…screw that! :). On the bright side ~ woodworking is cheaper than JEEPING ~, well wait…no no..I’m incorrect..those fancy wood planes for $8,000 I found yesterday indeed compete with JEEP upgrade costs.
  • Zinder – I’m roughly $100 – $120 in hardware parts & lumber. I bought a Porter Cable 9690LR Fixed Base 1-3/4hp router ($129) from Lowes, it’s body dia measured 3.5” (89mm) which is exactly what the drawings called for.

RCT – it’s a fun project that’s for sure. It’s intimidating looking at first, but I’ve built other complex things, this is on up there mind you, but it’s no more complicated, albeit more complex than the wooden-router-lift I built, just a ton more parts!

You are going to like this tool. How do I know? I built one. Be prepared to figure out some kind of chip and dust collection. I am still working on that part myself.

Bill kind of thought the same at first, $6 android ap Measure Master pro from Calculated Industries made the conversion simple really, but I understand what you’re saying.

Luv2learn, thanks for sharing that bit of intel, inspiring to get me back in the shop, taking a break and building the handle right now, thinking of changing it from straight though to curvatured like someone else who built it (forget who).

Still debating whether to build the clamps, just not sure I’m crazy about them, was considering some auto-adjusting jig clamps. I first thought all the 3/8” holes were bench dog type holes for the clamp plans, but see it’s not now.

Hey Brett the curved handle modification was me. After I had it all together and put it though its first trial run I didn’t like how close the two handles were.

Ahh ok thank you sir, well I have some scrap oak dining table legs scrap I’m considering building a two-piece curved handle out of, figured I’d get it all assembled first though then go back, didn’t care for the closeness of the handles either. Nor do I care for the tiny little 1” dowel handle that’s being changed out to something oak and maybe 3-1/2” long.

With that device, who needs a CNC machine. This is probably the best review I have read of one of Mr. Wandel’s plans. The guy is extraordinary, albeit probably a little eccentric. I mean, who builds a wooden bandsaw?? He reminds me of a woodworking version of Dr. Emmett Brown (Back to the Future). I love his website. Please send some picture of some of your creations with your pantorouter.
