Long auxiliary fence and bed for the router table

Going to cut a flagpole.

We’ll see how this works out.

I was wondering also. Looks like it is built well though.

Same here. I also can go outside the window with my miter saw if needs be. Most of the time it is not required but it is a nice option.

re: Why so long? Well, I’m planning to cut five foot poles using a 5/8 inch quarter round bit. A 1.25 inch diameter dowel is the objective. A stop block on each end to limit travel and leave a reference surface on each end of the blank. Thus a twelve foot fence/bed seems appropriate. A scaled up version of my previously used technique pictured here:

I think it will work. What do you think?

I think you’re going to have perfect 5’x1-1/4” long poles. Hope you need make a lot of them for the work that went into your fence!
What really got me was the plantation shutters on a fancily cased window with stool and apron, nicely painted “spring green” walls, and flooring that’s nicer than my kitchen flooring in your shop. I’ll bet if you’d widened the view to include the ceiling, we would’ve seen crown moulding, perhaps even a chandelier. Sweet! My shop will never seem the same…

@RCCinNC

Special order black walnut flagpole x 4 at 4.5 feet. The artist will make an iron sleeve joint, eagle on top, and a stone base to hold the resulting nine foot flagpoles. An American flag in one and an Army unit flag in the other. For the local VFW.

Thanks for the compliments on my shop. Wide angle views are posted at https://www.lumberjocks.com/MrLaughingbrook/workshop

Nice. Very nice, both project and it’s meaning…and the shop. Must say, I can see how a chandelier might get in the way, so I can forgive you that, but from a retired trim carpenter’s perspective, (and sales pitch) you really need add some crown moulding to balance the space… ; )

Have a great day!

I agree with RCCinNC, you went all out on the shop.

Now I understand why the long fence, and the flag pole will be for a great cause.

Very inventive and on occasion, very useful. Probably. Maybe. LOL. Good work. Thanks for sharing.
