I have been looking for a dovetail jig for the longest time and was looking at the leigh and the omni jig but I found out that you are limited. So I woent looking for one and found this one at homedepot for $40. Now I was a bit skeptical at first but when I got it home and used it for the first time after reading the manual and watching the dvd that is included, it is the easiest jig to use in my personal opinion. The only downside which I dont even consider a downside, so the only thing I wo...

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

01-16-2010 05:26 AM by closetguy | 5 comments »

There are 100 different ways to build cabinets. Everyone has their own method that works well for them, and there is really no wrong way as long as they are square and sturdy. The goal is to be able to build them as quickly as possible, without compromising quality. I’m in the middle of a large cabinet job and decided to take a break this afternoon to document this little bit set that I have found invaluable in making my cabinets. Sommerfield Tools has a lot of high quality router bits ...

1/2 lock miter router bit

1/2 lock miter router bit

10-19-2010 09:21 PM by Edward83 | 13 comments »

I saw this while looking through the router bits at Lowes. I never heard of of a lock miter router bit and feeling adventurous I decided to drop the thirty dollars for it in hopes of upping my abilities to build a better quality box. I read the instructions and set it up in my router table. The instructions suggest having a few pieces to practice on, and believe me they weren’t kidding. It says that you can use it on boards up to 3/4 in. but I would do it a little shy. The nature o...

Great new router bit for your collection

Great new router bit for your collection

03-01-2012 02:46 AM by T. D. Reid | 18 comments »

This is a great bit that I am using to make Arts and Craft style legs with so that they show quarter sawn white oak on all four sides. The instructions also say that you can use it to build boxes or make drawers but I have not attempted these procedures. The bit comes in two sizes one for use on stock 1/2 -3/4 of an inch and the one I purchased for use on 3/8 – 1/2 inch stock. Now during the set up I did not realize that the bit that I had purchased was meant for use on the thinner stoc...

Not the router lift to buy

Not the router lift to buy

03-05-2011 09:32 PM by misbeshavings | 10 comments »

I bought a Jointech router lift 2 years ago based on ratings I found in magazines – it was a “tool of the year” award winner. Within a year, the Wixey digital indicator quit zeroing. So much for the digital advantage. This year, the lift quit lifting. It was never really “smooth”, and I finally stripped the gears off of the incredibly poor engineered nylon gear that engages a large ring gear to accomplish the lift. Insult to injury, when I ordered a rep...

Skil 91024 24-Piece Carbide Router Bit Set

Skil 91024 24-Piece Carbide Router Bit Set

05-24-2011 03:53 AM by BentheViking | 8 comments »

So I just got these off of Amazon. I know that they are not the highest quality set, but they were better than what I had (nothing). I have used Skil bits before and while they certainly not the best, they have always gotten the job done for me. Again for the price (less than $45) it was hard to say no. Mostly I wanted to make this post because when trying to research this set I could not find anything anywhere regarding what is included in this set and I figured now that I have it in my h...

This is a note to DynaBlue from the inventor: I read your review of the General Tools Mortise and Tenon Jig and wish to thank you for your expert review and analysis. If possible, I would like to be able to call DB and speak to him privately on some of the details, if you would please give me a way to call him.I am particularly interested because I am the inventor and patent holder of this tool, so I want you to know that your criticism is completely fair and accurate and, as the designer, bu...

Best Bang for the buck.

Best Bang for the buck.

I received this router table with stand for $140 bucks delivered to my door. I was hesistant because there are not a lot of reviews on this table and the low price, but I needed a simple table to get some craft fair projects completed. I ended up being competely impressed when I opened the box. It came to my door in fantastic condition about 3 days after I placed my order. Assembly was very easy and straightforward. I took about an hour and only had 3 different bolts for assembly. 95 perce...

Woodpeckers Side Winder Router Lift SW350

Woodpeckers Side Winder Router Lift SW350

06-17-2012 12:32 AM by Chris Cook | 11 comments »

This all started with the idea of designing and building my own router lift. I researched what people were doing and found a ton of really cool ideas. I looked at quite a few of the commercial router lifts and just wasn’t ready to pony up $350-$500. During my research I came across the Woodpeckers SW350 router. As it was $239 on Amazon, it kept coming to mind as the solution. So, I figured that I would go ahead and get it. If it’s junk, it goes back to Amazon.Well, it certainly isn’t ...
