Home built Router Lift for Dewalt DW621 router
Hello all. I have been needing to set up a router table with lift for a while now but have been thrown off by the cost of both tables and router lifts. At least with the lifts I can see a lot of engineering and machine work to justify the cost. The tables not so much.
Double feather board
This is the feather board I use for routing raised panels with a vertical bit on the table.
Cherry and bird's eye maple cabinet
Here is a cabinet I finished a short time ago for book storage. It is my own design, but pretty standard as far as cabinets go. The door panels are bird's eye maple with the rest cherry. The top is my first breadboard end effort. I like the look of the ends standing proud so I did them that way. Three through dowels hold the ends in place. The centre one is tight whereas the two others are in slots for movement.
Dust collection - box vs Keen
I'm just wrapping up the router table build that I've been wanting to do for many years. It's time to decide on dust collection so I thought I'd get some opinions.
Heat and Routing
One reason to make cuts in 1/4" passes is because smaller routers cannot handle the work load the big boys can. Another reason is to allow time to evacuate the chips. Plunge routers have turrets for controlled cut depths.
Fireplace Mantle Build
Mantle for the master BR with matching cabinets for the bath. These are maple since they will be painted and glazed.
