« Part 18: Wings mounted... ready for takeoff Part 19 of Jet cabinet saw re-hab series Part 20: assembling the extension wing/router table »

Ol’ Frankie Baby wasn’t the only guy who liked to “do it my way” :^)

Started by modeling the project in SolidWorks … similar to my Rockler router table top, resized for a new (larger) plate, and turned 90 deg. from what you’re used to seeing on extension wings…

Next comes exporting the cut lines into a 2D file and tweaking to facilitate conversion in the CAM suite…

I forgot to take a screen shot of the Enroute file with cutting lines…. but this is what the G-code (some 327 lines of it) that gets fed to the CNC router looks like.

Wait until LT, and then off to the woodshop I go…

Flipped it over and then cut the back side for the T-nuts that lock the fence in place.

Last night I joined, ripped and cut to length all the linear stock out of misc. Red Oak boards I’ve accumulated…. so now I should be able to glue this puppy up and have me the spiffiest extension wing in the east.

Looks really good!
I wish I had access to a CNC Router….
CAD, CAM and the required skills!!!

You’re using OAK??? I thought ”Pine is Fine!”

I wanted to use a hardwood for durability…. and didn’t have long enough maple boards…

Lot’s of oak in the bin, however, and I’m happy to use it up.
