Infeed/Outfeed Folding Tables SuperMax 19-38 - 9 replies

It tells you to adjust the set screws until the support brackets are flush with the bed. If they tables sit on top of the support brackets, then the bracke...

Coffee Table, Map Drawer-esque - 2 replies

Always liked Map Drawer coffee tables. 40” x 36” is just a guess right now, but probably pretty close. Just curious as to thoughts on proportions, etc. Not sure if they will be fake drawer fronts with one big drawer on each side or one short and one big. Thoughts? Thank you.

For all of you who have the big Triton in a Router Table, did you take the clear dust shroud pieces off or leave them on? I took them off thinking it wouldn’t limit the flow.

Ok guys, I need some input! Building a combo downdraft/outfeed table. I have a old commercial furnace blower I acquired that has 7 speeds.

I see lots of ...

Norm's Router Table - Attaching the top - 4 replies

For those of you who built Nahm’s Router Table… did you attach the top? I see on his plans its just 4 blocks in the corners. Just those blocks to hold it in it’s spot and the weight of the top/router does the rest? I am using a Phenolic top from Woodpeckers, so I guess I’ll be doing blocks with Gorilla Glue...

Our sister company does tree removal among other things, so I get a crack at some of the stuff they get. I saw this out there not to long after they cut it.

Thinking about making a sofa table. I know tastes vary, but here are two takes on the initial design. I personally like the top one. Cherry, with spalted maple drawer fronts. Not sure what I would do to the legs, or if I should add some sort of bottom shelf or stretchers. Open on the bottom design for now. Rough dims are 50”L x 30&...
