Default Shop notes router table #45

Hi, Guys I am new to this forum
I just got back into woodworking for the winter I have a classic 55 Chevy I work on in the summer.
My question is has any one built and sold any thing they built from shop notes.
is it okay to do that or should some one not copy projects from shop notes and sale there designs I made my router table slightly different as you can see I am new so my pictures may not upload.

Larry, you can not go into business selling a product built from the plan. When it comes time for a new table you can sell this one.

Larry, most of the router tables you see are just ideas adapted from other plans. Here is a great example: Fine Woodworking magazine published plans for a cabinet style router table. Forum member Joe started selling them as the RT1000 with his own modifications. 6 months later Norm of the New Yankee Workshop designed "HIS" table from the plans. I am sure you have seen this table everywhere. The trick is to find a plan you like and then make it your own by modifying it with your ideas. Take a good look at my Router Workshop table. It looks very spartan. This little table will handle about any job you throw at it. Bob and Rick taught us the "Keep it simple" methods and I agree they work best.

Mike,
That sounds like great advice. I think I will do that. I have seen norms router table I watched norm when he first started. I think every episode, I may have missed a couple episodes.
I am not sure how different they will need to be? is there a guide to home much needs to be different. I know that the one I built is too close.

You need to have some significant differences to avoid any infringement. Woodworkers often copy other peoples ideas and many do not have patent, copyright or trademark protection. The reason for that is it costs big bucks to get. This is why you see so many copies of Bob Rosendahls designs. Bob's box joint jigs, miter sled and EZ Link Systems are showing up everywhere these days with minor modifications. It is a good thing they are since Oak Park is selling off remaining inventory and not producing more at this time.

Mike,
Thanks for all the great information.
I think I will just stick to my own use I will probably just build for friends.
I had a part time job at woodcraft store in the local area, and had a lot of useful Ideas.
on how to build router tables and different products. I may have to revisit my buddy's
at woodcraft I still visit from time to time.
