I’m a perfectionist. I only have a few projects under my belt but each one has been seems to be a leap in quality from the last. I was wanting to do dovetails, lots of inlay and complex joinery. I wanted to do it all but it seemed like I was going to be making alot of router jigs, bandsaw jigs and table saw jigs. I didn’t want to spend all of my time making jigs though. I wanted to spend it making these projects I see in my head. In my head they’re perfect and I won’t be satisfied with anything less.
I stumbled upon a review for the Router Boss and thought, WOW this is the machine that can take me up the next level. But the more I leaned about it the more I realized something. This was going to jump me up Several levels in quality, repeatability and control.
I wanted one but the price made me stand back for a few more weeks. I read more reviews and called the owner several times to talk about the machine. I bit the bullet and got the 42 inch with loads of extras.
I’ve made several things for my shop with it but I haven’t had the time to produce anything worth putting on here yet. I’m still getting my shop up and running so I used it to make all the drawers for my tool chest under my bench.
I could go on for quite a while telling you more about it, and I may in the future, but you can learn so much more by visiting http://craftsmangallery.com/ or calling and talking to Lewis. There are also some great instructional videos on their website.
You guys deserve to get some real pictures of mine so I’ll have to do that when I get some time.
