  1. Arched Bandsaw Box

    After your kind words on my first bandsaw box I had to try another! This one is red oak and poplar laminated into a 4"x4"X10" block. Finish is Watco Ducth Oil rubbed on and 2 coats of poly sanded between coats. Pulls are unstained poplar. I really like the grain pattern on the front. Didn't get...
  2. Yet Another Router Table

    I have planned a router table of some sort for quite some time. This winter I decided a table saw extension would best fit my needs. I have a 70's vintage Craftsman 12 inch floor saw with three table extensions - one left and two right. For the router extension I removed the table extension...
  3. Router Insert for Ryobi Table Saw Sliding Table

    This is a simple box made from scraps, I mounted a strip of wood on the front edge with two short screws so the strip can be easily removed if it interferes with routing. The strip of wood serves as a stop while sanding with a belt sander, keeps work from scooting off the table. Ryobi made a...
  4. Animated Wood Eagle Display Craft

    A new design created for 2015. This is an eagle made out of various hardwoods. The eagle measures, 12" x 21" x 7". The tail stabilizes the eagle when it is at rest. You roll it along any surface and the legs will push the wings up and down. The beak opens to give it a different look as you play...
  5. Extension Wing Router Table Zero Cost

Just inlet for the insert and a couple rabbets on the ends to hang over the rails. This would have been all that was needed if I used bearing...
  6. Parker and Landon's Box of Blocks

    "I can't throw them away." Just a stack of wood cutoffs, taking up space in the workshop. It is hard for me to give them up. They would burn nicely in the fire place (won't do it). Perhaps the garbage? No way, I won't even think of my wood nuzzling next to potato peels. And then, I see...
  7. Router Table

    I built this router table probably about 10 years ago, but I've been tweaking it and making it better ever since. It's not terribly beautiful, just some pine plywood for the carcass and doors/drawer. But, it sure works great for me. I have two different inserts (both from Wood Peckers, they...
  8. Expansion Wing Insert Sort Of

    This is more of an epiphany than a project. A while back I made a typical router insert for my TS that was all involved and used the TS fence. My main router table top hangs on the wall as there is no room in my garage for a traditional router table. I wish I had as much woodworking space as...

    Large router base, for my palm router. Large router base for my palm router. I bought a cordless palm router some time back and love it (Makita DRT50ZJX2), but once in a while I would love a larger base for it, to give me more stability, so this one was made out of need and with lots of joy...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Well, I guess I am going to answer my own question since I am replacing my Rousseau insert. This thing is impossible to set level since the plate is "warped by design". According to Rousseau, "The base plate is molded with a slight crown to ensure the center is the highest point. " Really? I...

    Anyone out there have a JLT Panel clamp? What are the pro's/con's? There is a local small cabinet shop auction next month in the middle of nowhere that has the 8 ft clamp model up for auction. Picture is labeled as a drying rack. Hoping to swoop in a purchase for dirt cheap. Any thoughts? Brandon
