Shop evolution #2: Table Saw Extension Router Table #1

06-01-2008 04:26 AM by ShannonRogers | 5 comments »

After completing the new counter top, my next step will be to breakdown the adjacent cabinet that I used to store my 13” planer and bench top router table. Eventually, I will store the planer on the bottom shelf of the workbench. I have been eyeing the Maste-R-Lift from JessEm for a while so I thought this would be a good time to invest. First I glued and screwed together 2 pieces of 27×20” 3/4 MDF and edge glued and biscuited some scrap 3/4 ash to the sides. Here i...

My First Router Table

05-03-2008 06:39 AM by DaveConry | 14 comments »

This is the router table that I have been working on. It has been an interesting experience in that this is my first attempt at building a cabinet and drawers. The cabinet itself is made out of 3/4” cabinet grade plywood. The end panels and back are aligned using #20 biscuits, and secured with glue and screws, while the center panels are set in dadoed grooves. The face frame was constructed using pocket screws and aligned to the cabinet with buisquits. The face frame is made from...

Yet Another Router Table Project #5: Back to WOOD working

04-19-2008 07:25 AM by ww_kayak | 15 comments »

After my slight diversion into metal working, I’m back to working on the wooden parts of the router table… Gluing up this face frame was pretty straight forward, however the frame is made from cherry from my own property, and that’s just plain cool :). Even though it has been air drying for a couple years, I have a feeling it still has a pretty high moisture content (no meter). This piece is quarter sawn and has some real nice ray fleck. Here again I was a...

The Router Table Saga #1: The setup

03-28-2008 05:42 AM by Mark Shymanski | 6 comments »

I’m finally setting up a shop in the east half of our two-car garage. I’ve got some rudimentary tools and even more rudimentary skills and a whole lot of enthusiasm and a very understanding Wife, so I bought a router to add to the 20+ year old fixed base B+D router I have. (I will have to write a review of the Triton 2 1/4 horse router when I’ve put it through its paces). Working on our dining room table a chair set that a buddy of mine was making for us I asked him abo...

Yet Another Router Table Project #1: Another Router Table

03-15-2008 09:53 AM by ww_kayak | 8 comments »

Well I figure I’ll introduce myself by sharing a new series to document my latest project… yet another router table ;). This one is… well, will be, a cross between Norm’s, chazmonro's here at Lumberjocks, and jasnance's over at Flicker. I liked the idea of trying a torsion box. I also like the idea of a vertical drawer to hang wrenches, inserts, and such. Yes I’m a newb (albeit and old newb), so if anyone sees any errors, or has any suggestions I’d apprec...

First Shop #8: Router Table!

01-13-2008 07:08 PM by YooperCasey | 2 comments »

I spent last evening making myself a router table! This is my first “major” project that is beyond anything small and simple. I had nothing but a circular saw, corded drill and hand tools to make it with and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. When I started I was stuck with a bit of a problem. I have no sawhorses or any other way to handle large stock such as 2X4s. I had to balance them on a small tool box and a beer cooler! To make sure the cuts were straight I c...

My New Router Table #8: A Proud Moment

12-04-2007 03:07 AM by Blake | 24 comments »

So, No more messin’ around! Its time to cut the hole! With my template all biscuited and glued up, I shaved off the other half of the biscuits and sanded everything flat. With a little sanding and shaving off the inside I got the router plate to fit perfectly inside. So I decided to use my fabricated router plate template to make a one-piece template. This way I could also test the accuracy of it. So I sandwiched together the template, one solid piece of plywood which would be the...

My New Router Table #7: Tedious details... Gettin' there

12-02-2007 03:57 AM by Blake | 12 comments »

Here’s what I have accomplished in the past week or so… Drawers:So last time I talked about my drawer construction and my not-so-orthodox method of “biscuit-slotting” them together (the “don’t try this at home, kids” method). I got scolded for that a little, and for good reason. It probably wouldn’t have lasted as long. So I ended up just shooting them full of brads to reinforce them since I figured out that the brads would be hidden by the s...

My New Router Table #6: Finishing Touches

11-28-2007 07:56 AM by Blake | 12 comments »

I’ve been adding the details as I have had time here and there after work. I finally got my router plate (Incra Magni-lock) which I had to special order through Woodcraft because as far as I could tell nobody carries it. Woodcraft had to order it from Incra and have it shipped to them before shipping it to me. This is what I got: I liked the actual Incra router plate better than the woodpecker brand version. And after it finally arrived in the mail I was pretty glad I had chos...
