I know it's got to be here somewhere, but I can't find it. How do you make the joint using the Router work shop table?

Was it in one of the tapes?

Hi Bob

I know the one you are talking about, I don't recall the RWS Episode but it's easy joint to make.
Chuck up a 1/4" bit, use your 1/4" brass setup bars and set the fence for 1/4" for 3/4" thick stock ,then run the board over the bit using a push block ,then run the next part of the box/draw on it's side/edge over the bit.see drawing below,it will take you a time or two to get it down but once you do you will have it.
So to say use some scrap wood for the 1st.time you set it up :)

Then Check for fit,if it's right make your box/drawer,save your 1st.one for the setup blocks next time you want to use this type of joint.
This type of joint works great for 1/4" and 3/8" stock also but use a 1/8" or a 3/16" bit

It seems like I remember them doing it in a real simple manner using one of their Spacer Fences...

I found my notes!!

Using the 1/4" Spacer Fence setup as for box joints... and a 1/4" straight bit.

Make a spacer block for Cut #2.

Use backer / pusher blocks behind each cut.

Cut #1:
FRONT piece good side UP... flat on table...
Make the cut... a groove 1/4" x 1/4" and 1/4" away from end.

Cut #2:
SIDE piece. Clamp spacer block over the Spacer Fence.
Hold piece on end with the good side toward the fence.
Use a scrap block from the side to hold piece solid against the fence.
Make the cut.

Done!

Slicker than you know what! :) :)

I finally found the tape that came with my set of spacer fences. A picture IS really worth a hundred words.

Bob,

Maybe you missed part of it... when done, it looks just like your top picture... but not like the bottom pic.

Note, I think I got the Front / Side reversed... fixed now... :) :)


Make a spacer block for Cut #2. This makes the cut right at the edge like a 1/4" rabbet.

Use backer / pusher blocks behind each cut.

Cut #1:

SIDE (your Ochre Color) piece good side UP... flat on table...
Make the cut... a groove 1/4" x 1/4" and 1/4" away from end.

Cut #2:
FRONT (your Orange color)
piece. Clamp spacer block over the Spacer Fence.
Hold piece on end with the good side toward the fence.
Use a scrap block from the side to hold piece solid against the fence.
Make the cut.

Done!

Isn't this what Rick calls the combination joint on the show? They show the Jewelry Chest project all the time on the WWchannel and the case sides are constructed with this joint I think. Basically one panel gets routed flat and the other on edge.

I took my notes from an episode on the ww'g ch.

I don't remember what the episode was about... or what they called the joint.

I do remember that when I saw it, I liked it alot. :sold:
