Default Incra Fence uses

I see em on the table's here but curious what they do that other methods can't duplicate. I mean other than just the precision adjustments. They are really bulky, so they must have a special advantage that so far, I haven't seen here in actual usage.

Default Incra Fence uses

I have no patience for trying to shoot video and edit a build. I do take pictures from time to time, but not much for sharing. On another forum I tried showing off the features of my workbench build but was told I was too wordy, so rather then offend anyone I tend to share only knowledge.

The cabinet was just practice and is an under the workbench storage cabinet for chisels and layout tools. You should see the pile of practice boxes I made getting to the point where I felt competent with the Incra fence. Every one is made using a different dovetail or box joint, no two are the same.

Wow Terry , you are the king of joints . It’s one thing I really have a liking for , and hope to conquer someday . Blind dovetails are my favourite, and I have an Incra table and the fence . Just need Incras other neccesary accessories.

On your first pic , the second drawer from the top and the bottom one are my favourites

So this was all done with Incras system ?

Yes, all standard joints laid out in either the manual that came with the jig, or their project book that is bought separately. Not cleaver enough to figure it out by myself.

There are templates for about 60 different dovetail and box joints.

The drawers have red oak fronts and backs, white maple sides, Cherry and walnut accents.

A project Iím currently working on. The brown is white oak, light color is curly maple. The goal of the project is to wrap the dark color around the light color and vice-versa. If you look closely the light colored sides have an 1/8 inch dark strip on the top and bottom, continuous with the corner piece.



I learned several important lessons like making sure the corner accent piece is made out of a piece of wood that the large panel was, because the colors donít match.



Itís an eight drawer project, two different sized drawers. The height of the drawers are important in making them come out looking right.

Those cabinet ends are beautiful. I still don't see what that fence does.

It allows for repeatable, ďprogrammableĒ type cuts. Having a fence that moves in exacting 1/32 increments allows projects you canít do with a standard fence that you have to bump to fine tune.

More examples:

Business card holders


Whistles that I made to give to the youngest generation at family reunion in an attempt to drive their parents nuts


A trivet that had I think, 56 fence changes that needed to be repeatable. I know it would be easy to make something like this using cnc, but I dare you to try it on another router table.



The advantages of the Incra fence are for joinery and small craft type projects. If you think a router fence is just useful for edge profiling or routing rabbits, dados and grooves then your right, you can do everything you want using your fence to do, but if you want to open yourself up to entirely new ways to use a router table, then an Incra fence will allow you to do things you never consider possible.

It isnít just the front-to-back movements that offer 1/32 adjustments. The fence offers 1/32 left-to-right adjustment of stops for precise stopped dados and grooves. The superfence add-on also allows for routing tall items safely and precisely.
