Default Hello

Hi,

I'm an amateur, hobbiest woodworker. I'm a retired high school English teacher. I build furniture and am most inclined toward arts and crafts style. I would describe my skill level as advanced amateur, but still very amateur. I came to this site looking for plans to build a router table cabinet. I have the Rockler table top. I have an open cabinet with doors on the front, a power switch, and wheels. I have no drawers or anything like the Kreg router table. I belong to the El Dorado (California) Woodworkers Club. Last night we had a demonstration of the router tables built by some of the members. Three had built the Kreg table and one built the Norm Abrams router table plan. The leader of our group is a staff member of the local Sacramento Woodcraft store. We also had the manager of the store as a speaker. Interesting program.

Art From another retired teacher Design and Technology also Cabinetmaker Welcome to the forum; there are many here who can assist you getting what you want to do with a router. Just as a reminder; there is more that can be achieved when the router is held in the plunge mode, with the aid of template guides. Check out the material below.

Almost all of my router work is done with a router table. I also have and use a horizontal table. I have another router that I use exclusively in hand held mode. Two of the three routers are plunge routers. I have a Jointech Cabinetmaker systemt that I purchased several years ago at a Woodworking Show in Sacramento. I have never used it because my table is too small. I am now planning to finally build another table with a large enough top. I will likely need help with the Jointech when I get it set up. I also have a Leigh dovetail jig which I hope to sell as I don't use it anymore. I have done quite a few projects with it in the past.
