The hanger will be about 3" wide and out of 4/4 hard maple with one or two 1/4" through inlays running the full length of hanger much like the cutting boards featured in Fine...

    Hi, I'm an 82-year-old kid with an interest in routers, among other things. I recently built a pantograph from Matthias Wandel's plans, modified it to add 2/3 and 3/4 size copies, and I'm currently creating some incised-letter signs for my favorite conservative think tank. I want to enclose...

    Hello to all; I have been a hobby wood worker for almost fourty years. I've done almost every thing at one time or another. Right now I'm working on restoring my grand mother's dinning room set. It was made in 1917 and has seen more than it's share of hard times. I know that...

    Hi all, It has been a while, but I do have a project to show off. This one is a Camphor Laurel coffee table. It is roughly 400 x 500 (16" x 18") and 400 (16") high. I say roughly because the slab is an irregular shape. I had the idea for a sail boat inlay in the back of my mind for quite some...

    This is a box for my grandson, or rather for his mother to collect keepsakes in. All cherry, at least I think so. :) I routed out the inlays, but this time filled them with coloured wood filler and sanded flush. I applied some shellac before the filler, so it would not get into the grain around...

    I had this idea for a very long time and wondered why I had never seen another like this. Now I know. This is not an easy pattern and I'm still trying to make it better/ fit better/ look better. The cutting boards.....made more than one....are Maple and Padauk with the Padauk inset, some inlaid...
  8. Guide Bushings and Templates
    Hi all This is my first major 'how to" guide - and may be a bit premature given my relative lack of experience! However, I nutted it out myself in the weekend, put it to practice - and it worked - so made some notes and turned these into a (hopefully!) useful guide. I couldn't find the...

  10. Starting Off
    Hi! I am a mosaic artist and brand new to this site (and the realization that plunge routing could be my new best friend!) I do mosaics and have learned that, rather then trying to get a clean, SECURE border on a table, I could do a shallow plunge routing of the surface and make my own already...

    I have an antique small wall cabinet with a hardwood back and a large crack down the middle. I want to put a decorative spline (one of those butterfly/bowtie types) across it to reinforce it before it splits further. How do I use the router to cut the spline and receiving hole for it to the...

    Well, Summer is here and I am out of the shop until October. (I have so many summer activities - camping, bike riding, fishing, yard and garden work, you get the idea - and it makes me look forward to the winter and the cold days - when I can get back into the shop). So, I finished with some...
