Default My First Table

After the kudos I received from my poker table you gave me enough encouragement to try a simple router table.I'm kinda proud of the way it came out - you see most of my work is done with a flashlight sticking out of my mouth and a magnifying glass in one hand. I'm blind in one eye and have less then 40% vision in the other. I make my first cut at least 1/16 to 1/8 oversize, than I bring it to size a little at a time.
Thanks for looking
Angus

Hi Angus

You did a great job for a guy with a white stick,,, just joking ,,,, you did a nice job and you should be proud how it turned out ..

I see you don't have any storage for 1/4" shank bits,unless it's in one of the other drawers, here's little trick I use, just take some 1/2" DOWEL rod and cut it off to size and drill a 1/4" hole down the center of the dowel ,then just slide it into one of the 1/2" holes you have drilled out..


Again Nice Job

I should be so lucky to do that kind of job with two good eyes. Kudo's Angus.

Angus, I know that you are not after sympathy and I'm not offering any, however I can't help feeling humbled when I see you're standard of workmanship. As has been mentioned, a high percentage of able-bodied wood-workers would be well satisfied turning out such quality work. There are a number of forum members with disabilities, and I believe that it has been suggested that a special section be devoted for these members. Having now seen the work from two such members, I can assure you all that there would be some real treats in store for us.
