Here’s a router lathe box with the router in place. Just a simple 6”X6”X 45” box. I don’t turn, so I made this to make a cane. You can see the cane in the pic.
This is the crank end. Just turn the crank and move the router.
Here is the dial to locate the cavities for grooving. In my case, I’ll be making cavities for Turquoise inlays on a cane. The little square block is on the end of a 1/4” dowel through the dial and in to the box end.
Here’s the hame and end cap loosely fitted on the walnut cane. I used a Bowl Cutter to rout the cane. Good fit, by golly!
When we get back from our trip to Okinawa, I’ll do the inlays.
