Part 1: Router Table

08-27-2011 05:09 AM by Lance | 9 comments »

So, I went down to Moore, OK to pick up the extra bolts and washers that went with the INCRA router table I picked up last week on CL after work today, thought I’d pick up some cash on the way just in case. Good thing I did because he had the Kreg Precision Router Table Setup Bars, Kreg Feather-board, INCRA 12” Precision T-Ruler, Porter Cable 14 piece Forstner Bit set, 10’ Clear hose, Jet Hose Clamps. the E. Emerson Clamp Guide Track Set of 3 and a Jorgenson 6” Wooden ...

After a day and a half in the 108 degree heat I’ve come to the conclusion I need more tools/ the correct tool for the job!!! LOL I had the hardest time gluing up the rail and stiles, I didn’t have the correct glue brush, mine was to big, didn’t have the correct clamps, I really need some Jet Parallel clamps, or a picture frame strap clamp with 90 degree elbows to help make it square. The most important thing I need next would be about 6 more 110V outlets!!!! I HAVE ONE in...

It’s been 2 1/2 days of plugging and unplugging, sweating my A** off in the garage, and measuring twice cutting 3 times!! I’m learning though. I must have unassembled reassembled my router table 4 or 5 times today, it’s funny how the thing I’m building is a tool I need to use to build the cabinet!! Once I had it unassembled I realized I could use it as an out feed table to cut my 5’x5’ birch ply, worked out pretty good. Still work...

Part 4: Router Table

I finished up the face frame yesterday and today, I decided to change from 1” to 1.5” wide on the frame, I went with the smaller size originally because I thought I could get more drawer space. Making it bigger gives it the extra strength I think it needed. Today I put 2 coats of Minwax Wipe on Poly (Glossy) to all my pieces. I’m actually thinking about putting straight poly in the box to reduce friction with the dust, we’ll see how a couple coats of wipe on turns o...

My INCRA Wheel Kit and Shop Fox 13” full extension drawer slides came in Thursday so I dabbled in the shop installing the kit. I had to return the drawer slides because I think they were to short, so I went up to my lumberyard Friday to pick up some 16” Ferrari Slides for $5.82 pair, considering I paid $9.40 a pair for the 13” ones I think it ended up working out in the long run. Well I’ve been working here and there throughout the last week mostly applying the wipe...

So I finally finished the router cabinet today!!! About 50 man hours + later! P.S. I will never shop at HD again even if it’s closer to my house I went there to pick up some simple drawer pulls, saw the ones I wanted, there was only one type, one tub of them, one display…. so I grabbed 5 of them. Later in the day I installed the first one fine, installed the second and put both drawers in, took a couple steps back to see what it looked like…........... they were both d...
