“C” Clamp or Drawer pull

12-21-2021 07:12 PM by lizardhead | 2 comments »

I went to the hardware store to purchase some drawer poles for a router table that I am building. The cost was ridiculous but I found some “C” clamps for two bucks apiece so I decided to use them instead for the drawer pulls. The router table is cast-iron from sawstop along with their router lift. I wanted a larger table top so I used three-quarter inch Baltic Birch with a black sheet laminate formed around the cast-iron router table

Workshop build out #4: Tablesaw and router table cart

06-16-2021 01:14 PM by Savlaka | 0 comments »

So in setting up my shop the way I want to, I am putting most of the major tools that take up floor space onto carts. This time it is my tablesaw and an extension for the router to act as a router table.I am making the extension to more or less work with the tablesaw’s existing fence, both to extend my cut capacity on the saw, and to not have another tool table to have to make space for. The main cart is basic pine, cheap furring strips from the local Lowes, cut square there needed. ...

Router Table Base #1: Lumber and Planning

06-14-2021 10:47 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 2 comments »

When I first setup the current shop, I purchased an inexpensive router table. I went with the Rockler brand as I liked their lift. Over time I did not care for the table top or fence. They worked, but the T track slot caught on work (and I never used it…to this day I still know of no router table operation that requires or uses a miter slot…though I can imagine using it for locking in a feather board). But I digress. I replaced the top recently with some birch ply and made ...

Unisaw Router Table

03-24-2021 02:18 AM by WoodAbuser | 3 comments »

I have recently completed a Unisaw Side-Router-Table. I’ve been planning to do this for almost 20 years, and when I bought the original Jessem Rout-R-Lift. I also had a wood vise from my grandfather’s shop (probably came from Minnesota Ag College around 1915), and wanted to incorporate that in the far end. I purchased the slightly used Unisaw about 1998; it came with a mobile base, and crappy particle board side table. When I took apart the side table, I found the frame was (in my...

Systainer router table #3: Adding a fixed base

12-01-2020 11:40 PM by mafe | 6 comments »

Systainer router tableadding a fixed base. The China base arrived, so I could make a fixed mounted base.This will make it no more than a click, to put the router on the table. Crazy world, 4.99 GBP / 6.5 USD / 40 DKK, including shipping – no wonder the Western economy are falling apart… Had to wait two weeks, but that’s more than fair at that prize.Even comes in a nice box… It’s a plastic base, yes so not as solid as the metal base, but it does not matte...

Systainer router tabledust extraction and more… Last time when I finished the build and wrote the blog, I knew I could not fool my self… I wrote that the systainer should take the dust… Well I were fully aware that if I used it inside, I would have a lot of dust every were, so I decided to solve it right away. So here it is, fully hosed up, for routing.One hose on the work surface and one under the table, on the router, suction here provided by my small Makita battery vac. Here...
