Incra Router Table #1: Creating base cabinet

06-22-2013 12:21 AM by SPHinTampa | 1 comment »

My original router table was one of my first major projects. I was very pleased with the result and it worked well for years. I recently decided to rebuild my router table, primarily because I screwed up my first router table by installing a cheap phenolic plate that sagged. I had just been using a router screwed directly to the base of the table top and then using a piece of masonite with various sized holes to as a zero clearance insert. Then I bought a panel raising bit and figured i...

My Dovetail Jig Buying Journey #1: The first 25 Years.

05-12-2013 03:16 PM by JustJoe | 3 comments »

I spent yesterday playing with my newest joinery jig – the Incra LS-Positioner Super System. Others have already reviewed the Incra and rated it 5-stars (and I agree with them 110%). So instead of a review I thought I’d tell you about the personal journey of 25 years it took to get to the Incra. My dovetail obsession began in the 80’s when I was new to woodworking and hand skills were non-existent. I had plans for a small chest that required half-blind dovetails so I went and b...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #5: The Tray Bottom

10-16-2011 10:11 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

In my last post, I finished cutting the double dovetails … sorry for the passive aggressive parting line. It was late and I was tired. Now I will put the finishing details on the tray. The only 1/4” plywood that I have in the shop is a piece 13”x72”. My tray is 14 1/4” wide. So this is an opportunity to create a composite panel as a tray bottom. It will look like this: First I cut the center panel on the table saw. Then I cut the outer...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #3: Cutting double dovetails and making a few mistakes

10-10-2011 05:29 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

At the end of the last blog, I had glued up the trim to the tail sections of the R/L pieces: I used my oscillating belt sander to sand the ends flush Flush ends give me a flat surface for the next step In my previous blog, I mentioned that you need a zero clearance insert to avoid having the bit pull the workpiece down. I forgot to mention the need to ensure that you hold the workpiece against the fence, particularly when you pull the sled back thru the bit (the climb cu...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #2: Cutting the side joints

10-07-2011 04:07 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

First step of a double dovetail is to cut a through dovetail on each side piece and then attach a trim piece. This blog entry will cover that process. So starting with the end pieces and a 6” piece of trim stock (same width as the side piece, thickness doesn’t matter). Install the two template strips into the positioning system (1 dovetail strip and 1 double dovetail strip). The dovetail strip consists of an A side which lets you cut pins at 7/8” intervals and ...
