Default Wife's Slab Completed

Well after having some more back issues with doc bending a needle in my back. Then having to use a bigger needle for my injections. Felt like a SC-50 router bit going in my back. Well finally got the wife's piece completed and 1st coat of clear on it. She just got a sneak peak of it and says she loves it. Think I might be able to do the rest of my routing in the house this winter. 😃

Wow...that looks more like a painting than a router job! Incredible. Like Everend, I'm curious what the router you use is.

You keep getting better and better, Bobby. I know she'll love it and be proud of it. With all the great things you've been making, she'll have a museum before long.

I use a Dewalt dwp611 router on all my projects with a modified base plate. I also modified the base by cutting a hole out of it to allow extra light and chip removal. Link to the router I use. DEWALT 1.25 HP Variable Speed Compact Router DWP611 at The Home Depot - Mobile
