Good day

I would like to share with you what I did with the triangles after I “Copied and Past” them.

As for the last picture, I think that it will be better to “Copy” the triangle to 3/4” plywood.

Regards
niki

Niki,

Great series of pictures! Well-lit and totally in focus. Good job.

But what interests me, moreso than your triangles, is your router table top! Is that Engineered flooring???

What a great idea! So basically when I’m getting my flooring put into my house, I need to tell them to keep all of the scraps and just toss them into a box for me, don’t I?

You “Booked” me, yes, it is “Floor Panels”, 5/16” thick, Formica on both sides, guaranty for 15 years and slippery like hell.
I’m planning to cover also the fence one day…

I “click” them one to the other and screw them to the table top. Any uneven point is automatically leveled.
The router (Hitachi M8) is connected directly to one of the panels so, the height loss is only 5/16”. I don’t have any sagging because I’m using special (around 15 Cents) “router lift.

I use them for many jigs like the “Saw board” (circular saw cutting guide), circular saw auxiliary base, Drill press sacrifice plate and even for one of my Table saw sleds.

I’m gonna have to try that out. I’ve got some of that stuff laying around, and I’ve been trying to find a use for it. Thanks for the tip.

I’m not getting laminate; I’m actually getting engineered flooring, which is a 1/16” of the wood on top of 7-layer ply. I bet it would pretty much work the same way, though… I’ll definitely give it a try!

The is a place called Lumber Liquidators They have a bunch of stores around. You might be able to find a broken box of something if needed.

By the way they have something called “wood” That was the product code. Trickey name. Its suppose to be 300 bd ft of wood for 50.00. I saw the pile but didn’t have the truck so I didn’t purchase. So I don’t know what the contents is. I don’t see it on the web page any more but they might have it if you call the store.

There is actually one inconveniently located just 12 or 15 minutes from my house, Karson. But I think I’ll just wait and see what kind of scraps I have left over from when the floor is put in. After all, THAT will already be paid for.

They used to be a great source for Ipe (they sold it for decking, but I know of an artisan who used it to make his display shelves in his glass-blowing shop), but the aren’t stocking it at the moment. Last time I talked to them, they said they will probably have it again in the near future.

Not being familiar with Lumber Liquidators, what is their wood like? Is it just flooring material, or something thicker like 1+ inches?

It’s just a wholesale flooring supplier, Bill.

Darn, if they had solid wood around 1 inch thick, it would be great for my needs.

Bill The product called “WOOD” is actually lumber. so 300 bdft for $50. is less than 20 cents per Bd Ft. The thickness varies. And it could be any kind of wood. Rough sawn

Thanks Karson. I guess I will have to check them out. I do not mind rough sawn wood at all.

I re-loaded the pictures but I think that instead of routing a slot on the “base” (the solid wood), it would be better and easier just to glue a strip of Plywood, MDF or…floor panel with CA (super-glue).

I made it on a few triangles as you can see on the pic and it holds great….
