  1. Table-mounted Routing
    It's been a while since I posted on here. But I thought I would show my latest creation. It is long past due. I have been using a real crude router table I threw together a few years ago.

The plate is 3/8” so I went to make a set up for doing this today and got stuck. I have a Makita RF1101 plunge router (the kit with the plunge/fixed base) and I...

    My name is Don, and I turned 51 last year. I did a lot of woodworking as a kid, and got away from it for a long time. I've decided to start out with lower cost equipment, for financial as well as fact finding reasons. A guy told me once concerning a cheap guitar I got at a pawn shop, "If you...
