Yesterday I got a new tool for the workshop. It’s nothing too exciting.
It’s the $99 Ryobi router table from Home Depot. I’ve had extremely good luck in the past with Ryobi tools, and I personally wanted a little router table so this was the first item on the list of things to get.
It’s pretty light duty which is just fine. If we have anything heavy duty it can be done on the CNC sheet router. I’m thinking this will come in handy for boxes, small project finishing, edging, that kind of thing.
I set it up at home and I’m bringing it in, fully assembled, to the shop today. Yay!
So—please tell me some cool things I can do with a router table. I have an extensive collection of router bits already.
Also, a while back somebody posted a small tutorial on box making using a router. It was as such that the final box did not require any hardware- the top slipped onto the bottom pretty gently. Anybody remember this? I tried looking for it last night but came up empty.
I’m excited, though! I’ve wanted this for a while and it’s nice to knock one more item off the “want” list.
