  1. Homemade Router Guide Bushing Pin Wrench

    I don't know about you, but for me holding guide bushings while I thread the ring nut from under is a pain, particularly the smaller ones ! For my wrench I've chosen a HDF floor board for its density and its durability and drilled a 3/4" (18mm) hole using a spade bit at the drill press. Then...
  2. Jewelry Box

    Cherry jewelry box. This was one of the first pieces I made when I got into woodworking. I didn't have very nice tools to work with at the time. I had a cheap portable table saw (Delta) and a cheap router and router table from Sears.
  3. Tall Curio Cabinet

    A tall red oak curio cabinet designed to fit in a specific space. There was a door to the right that had to clear the cabinet when opened. The cabinet was 92" tall, 9" deep and 19" wide. The double door cabinet (the last photo) was the model for the tall cabinet. Originally we discussed...
  4. Pocket Business Card Holder Production Jig

    Here's a production jig I designed to make tons of pocket business card holders in no time. The jig features a base, a keeper frame, an excavating template, a hole template and is meant to be used with one or two plunge routers and two guide bushings. If you're planning to attend craft fairs...
  5. Ready for the Shingles

    Well, I just awoke from a "nap" and feel much invigorated. Watching this building go up is really exhausting! I went to the BORG today and got an attic ladder which the builders said that they would install for me. With that ladder, I can add storage space for all kinds of goodies that are...

    I have made a template for routing a pattern with 1/2 inch ply. However, I have a problem with the router bushing being much longer at nearly 3/4 inch. The bushing is 3/4 in OD and I see that as the OD goes up, so does the bushing depth. My first instinct was to grind the collar down to 1/2 in...

    I was reading an article in FWW magazine and for one piece the author instructed me to create a template. I am supposed to drill a 3 1/2" hole in the template so that I can use a bushing in the router to make the hole in the final piece (drill an undersized hole and route the hole to the...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all, I'm ordering a template guide base plate from Eagle America to work with my Bosch MRC23EVSK combo kit. Problem is that I'm not sure which base, fixed or plunge, I should buy it for. The fixed base is 6" and the plunge base is 7" so I have to pick one or the other. This is my first time...
  10. Woodturning
    Hi all. I'm new to this site. I just started wood turning and have turned what I think are a couple of great cedar bowls. I was pulled aside by my wife. She said that there was very tiny piles of dust beside the bowl. She said that she would wipe them away and the next day there was more...

    Recently, I've been trying to get more out of my router and I getting to the point where I need some guidance on what bushings to use. I've purchased a few of the Milescraft bases and jigs over the last year or so and they have all come with various sizes of bushings that lock into them. The...
