Freud Quadra-Cut Roundover Bit "Wow"

Freud Quadra-Cut Roundover Bit "Wow"

06-18-2009 06:29 AM by Pete_Jud | 11 comments »

I just ran 300 feet of 1.5 inch doug fir stair treads over a 3/4 inch Freud roundover bit on the router table to bullnose the work. I was very concerned about “tearout” as the old growth doug fir had a lot of tight knots in it. I had no tearout at all, and the I cut the bullnose in just 1 pass per side. The work is ready to install without any sanding. Great finnish. And almost no pitch buildup on the bit. This is the first Quadra-Cut bit that I have used, and I am impressed.

The MLCS Multi Joint System

The MLCS Multi Joint System

09-10-2013 10:09 AM by Blackie_ | 5 comments »

As a new adventurous into box joint, joinery and after study and research I optioned for the router table version The MLCS Multi Joint System as for me swapping out a router bit is much more to my liking apposed to swapping out a tablesaw blade plus it’s easier and leaves a cleaner cut. I’ve had this system for a good bit and after trial and error during the learning phase, I now have a good grasp on how it works, am pleased with how it preforms, it’s ease in use and ready t...

Dewalt Edge Guide is a Smooth Slider

Dewalt Edge Guide is a Smooth Slider

11-28-2012 05:51 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is a nice edgeguide that will expand the capabilities of your router. The fence is split, so you can slide it open for edge cuts, or keep it closed for inboard cuts. The guide locks down securely, and makes accurate cuts. It comes with everything you need, including knobs with springs to mount the guide to your router. The DW 618 uses the thicker rods, but it comes with some thinner rods for other Dewalt routers. This guide is helpful for cutting strip inlays, fluted columns, d...

Rockler Trim Router Table

Rockler Trim Router Table

02-24-2014 08:47 PM by redryder | 6 comments »

I purchased this Trim Router Table last December. For me it has proved more useful than I expected. I can set it up pretty much anywhere I want. In the shop, outside or anywhere with power. It tears down as fast as it goes up. Two clamps and dust collection if you want. I am not a fan of hard edges on wood so I have used it mostly but not exclusively with a roundover bit attached. It is meant for smaller projects and not something like large panels. I compare it to my small band...

Good starter table.

Good starter table.

03-01-2008 02:02 AM by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got this router table as part of a combo with this router. My previous router table was all molded plastic and had a significant bow in the table making it useless. This table is nice for a starter table but it doesn’t have a lot of the high end features. The fence is very adjustable with the ability to move the out feed side independently and also slide the sides to cover the bit hole. There is a 2 1/2” dust extraction port on the back which I haven’t used because the ...

Best Bang For My Woodworking Buck

Best Bang For My Woodworking Buck

11-30-2009 02:06 AM by MKLowman | 7 comments »

I have been working on my basement bar and needed a way to hide a steel column that I bulit my bar around. I decided to try a fluted column. Problem is that the bar is being made of cherry and I never made a fluted column in my life. I researched it, but it seemed to be akin to rocket science. That is until I came across a recent issue of Woodsmith that featured DRL’s fluted column jig. For $30 bucks I figured it was worth a shot (even better since the owner gave us Woodjocks a $...

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

09-16-2011 11:37 PM by NiteWalker | 7 comments »

I bought one of these bushing sets way back before woodcraft rebranded all their in house products as woodriver. That set has performed flawlessly over the years. A few things I love about the set is the variety of included sizes, the fact that they’re brass and won’t work loose as easily as steel bushings can, and that all the rims of the guides protrude less than 1/4” so 1/4” template material can be used. I recently bought another set because they’re on ...

Only $60 but that was $60 down the drain.

Only $60 but that was $60 down the drain.

05-23-2009 04:13 AM by TNBodger | 21 comments »

It’s cheap (cheap as in poorly made and from bad materials). It took me an hour of adjusting and more adjusting to get an ALMOST decent half blind dovetail out of this piece of _! Clamping the pieces in place is time consuming and requires way too many turns to hold the wood securely in place (which also means way too many turns to release the piece after routing it). Also, the screws that hold the template in place is positioned in a way that will prevent clamping thinner pieces of ...

EZ Pro Dovetail Jig

EZ Pro Dovetail Jig

03-17-2014 05:59 AM by CalNinja | 1 comment »

I recently used this jig to do half blind dovetails for a shadowbox I was building. The jig came with a half inch dovetail bit with bearing, Allen wrench to set the depth gauge, the jig it self and instructions. The instructions were fairly easy to understand after you read it carefully. I decided to do half blind dovetails so it took me a couple practice pieces on scrap wood to get the fit just the way I want. Once I cut familiar with how the jig is oriented with the router for cutting ei...
