Default Got my router table set up!

And I'm having a blast!!! I got the Oak Park table, made a base for it (with the router table of course!). I routed every piece of wood in the house, just to try out different bits in different ways. I made my first raised panel "door" (10"X20") last night.....made alot of starter wood for my fireplace at the same time with a fancy cope or bead on it ....Oh well, practise makes perfect!

Hey tpyke, I wish mine was done. Still have to drill the plate for my router.
I can't wait to make some firewood. My garage gets pretty cold.

Keep practicing tpyke! I got my table set up a few weeks ago and I’m working on my 1st rail / stile / panel project. A pedestal plant stand. I think I’ve gone through enough wood to build this thing 3 times. But I’m learning and the final result should be worth it! Post some pics of your “firewood”….

Unfortunately, the firewood is now ash.....

But here's a pic of the panel. I can pick it up and shake it a bit and it doesn't fall apart!

It's not glued nor finished 100% (as you can see in the top left corner), and I don't think it ever will be as I have no use for this and about 1000 other projects in my head....

Some years ago I too made a raised panel as a test piece with no use for it, however a couple of years later my wife asked me to make a Chival type mirror for our guest bedroom, you guessed it, I used the raised panel frame!

Hi tpyke

NOT a total lost at this point just make one part to the door... one stick and one bit and you will have it done...

Here's just a little tip,,knots in the center of the sticks are OK but not on the edges..
most are floating so to speak..
