standing armoire -- router boss project
thought i'd post a few pics of a project i finished recently using the router boss device.
it is a standup armoire for my sweetie. 90% of the router work was done using the router boss --
the raised panels on the side panels, the side panels have lock miter joints at the corners, the
half moon on the front of the side panels was turned on the router boss, the slots for the side hung drawers, and the slots for the drawer inserts -- the drawers have dovetails at the back corners and i used floating tenon / mortise to fix the front faces to the sides -- the half moon pieces are also attached to the front face of the side panels using floating tenons -- all done using the router boss --
the individual disks that make up the legs were done using a template, plunge router, trim bit, round off bit -- then using the positioning precision of the router boss -- i cut a 1/4" hole exactly in the center -- then turned a 1/4" rod when insert thru the centers holds the stack together --
perhaps it is due in part to my limited experience, but i don't see how i would have done this project without the capabilities of the router boss -- it is so adaptable, has amazing precision and reproducibility, sometimes you have to use some imagination in clamping / fixing the workpiece -- but figuring that part out is half the fun -- the other half is seeing the results --
be glad to go into more specifics about the construction techniques if anyone is interested --
