Default Started to youtube some of my router jigs

Hi all,

I have never posted on this forum but been a not so frequent reader a few years. Bought my first router 20 years ago and have had late Pat Warner as inspiration throughout my carreer. I Work as part time pro cabinet maker (the other part time as mechanical engineer). Locally (Sweden) there has been quite some interest in some of my jigs the latest years so now I once and for all started to make some videos handling each jig. I Think there might be some common interest for some solutions, for example the track clamps routed into the jig for work holding (now microjig have same concept so it's not as new as it was some 10 years ago) as well as the concept with distance sticks I'm using to rout exact mortices and tenons.

Also I Think there might be some interest of how I use the end grain jig in part#2.

So far I have 3 jig videos (mortice jig + 2 of the end grain jig) + my router table on my channel but more jigs are to come. Don't think I can make clickable link but copy paste into browser. Check the attachments to get a hint what the films are about.

Welcome to the forum, Ola! When you get a minute complete your profile with first name to clear the N/a in the side panel.

Nice looking fixtures. I like building them, too. Besides fixtures, what else do you work on that you can show us? We like photos of projects, tools, shops, fixtures, etc. so post away!

Thanks for the post and channel link. I will visit sometime. I am new to using a router and am in the crawl stage versus walk or run!

Thanks for the welcome David, I have updated my profile with a few things.

Next question...Oh!That's a extensive one....If I build to myself (not customers) I'm very much into "seamless tangent transitions" at the moment, like pics attached of side table, trying to make minimalistic designs without too many sharp corners and visible joints.

The ladder desk is customer project but managed to get some of my design preferences into that, like the work Surface with integrated drawers and compartment for chargers etc.

Except from my own style I build to customers and I have one major where I build prototypes for a furniture company, unfortunately can't show any of that.

Gorgeous work Ola. I particularly like the table with the tapered legs. My brother did some design and test pieces in metal for a design firm some years ago. I think it was the happiest period of his life.

Welcome Ola. I activated a link to the video that your link sent me too. Hopefully that leads everyone to the rest of your videos.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Very nice work, Ola, and the clean lines look very good. Glad you joined us and we're looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Which woods are these and what finish do you use (primarily)?

Thanks for the kind words, glad you like my work. I will try to contribute to the forum whenever I can, the router is my favourite tool so this should be a good place to be.

If I build to myself I like Ash at the moment, finished with Osmo natural (slightly white tinted) hardwaxoil to keep and unfinished natural look. Usually I use lye before the hardwax oil to stop the yellowing process.

Drawers on the side table are Rosewood.

I thought they looked like Rosewood. Which variety - Honduras, Bolivian, East Indian, Brazilian, etc. ...?
