Default What's Your Favorite Router Workshop Project?

I thought this might be an interesting question for those of you who are fans of the show. Myself I am limited to those shown on the Woodworking Channel as the show has never run in my area.. unfortunately I wish I could see so many more of those projects.

My favorite... I think would have to be the Jewelry and Lingerie Chest which is actually a 4 part or episode project. The reason... you can see a lot of what the router is capable of doing and a number of those famous Router Workshop jigs are used and a number of joinery methods etc. are used. Neat project.

So... what's your favorite project from Bob and Rick? Remember "it's nice when it fits and only good when it does" .. I love that!

Hi Corey

That's a real hard one , they are all so good
I have all 95 shows on VHS/DVD it's hard one.

I guess I would say the Magic Box It's so easy and it looks great and just about any one can get it done right the 1st. time with Bob R. video or RWS show.

Corey,

Like yourself, I do not get the show either, can you believe that for a place called Atlanta?

I am with you on the jewelry chest. They hit a lot of ground and it is a neat project as well.

I would love to see the one on the Magic Box that Bj mentioned above. That is a nice little box. It is in my book, but would be nice to see them make it in person.

Oh well.... TG for the Woodworking Channel at least. They could use some new material though, the reruns are geting boring.

I think I like the Desk accessories show... board with Pen holder, paper clip cup, in/out trays, and a lidded box... don't have the #.

Have Fun,

Bob, that one would be high on my list of shows to see. Like Bob... getting tired of seeing the same shows on the WWking channel. Seen them all now at least a dozen or so times I think

I don't get the show either. But, I think a show on routing profiles while turning would be great.

I have to agree with Corey, the Jewelry and Lingerie Chest.

There is a simple solution to not being able to view the show in your area. Email your local PBS program director, then post a sign in your favorite woodworking supply dealers asking others to do the same. These guys listen, and if enough in your area request the show they will run it. There are 14 seasons of the show available to PBS, so there is no good reason for reruns for a couple years.
Season 4 is available on DVD from Oak Park. My overall favorite Router Workshop project is routerforums!

I also liked the small Writing Lap Desk...

... some good jigs / fixures used in it...

Have Fun,

Bob,just FYI there is a book by Bob and Rick called Router Projects and Jigs. It's a great book and covers the magic box in it as well as many of the projects done on the show... and most of the jigs that Oak Park sells. Good reference book and some neat little projects.
