Part 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...

Part 2: Carcass

Well as usual I only got about 25% of what I wanted to get done, done. Basically I was able to assemble the carcass. Unfortunately tomorrow is Monday, so it will probably be a week before I get much else done. That damn job… always getting in the way of my work :o

Part 3: Making the router table plate

How many of the insert rings do most of you really use? and what sizes? Rugh cut… finish cuts… Tomorrow I’ll make some holes…

Well, the plate making actually went smoother than I thought, although I did forget to drill one hole. The main reason I bought the Milwaukee was to avoid buying a lift. It provides a top access hole to raise and lower the bit… and that is the hole I forgot, DOH! DOH!

Part 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...
