Another item that was pretty much built entirely with the router. (As requested and designed by the wife).
The 'slots' in the end table sides were cut using a very simple jig and the M12V plunge router using a 1/2" straight bit.
A roundover was then added to all slots to soften the edges.
The ends were then shaped with a single template moved from one side to the other.
The wood is Blue Pine from a local lumber yard -- purchased when they had a 'hobby wood' sale @ $0.05/linear foot. (It was originally cut as T&G flooring -- the hobby wood sale is for those pieces they could not use for flooring due to splits, knots, etc).
All together -- about $0.40 worth of wood, a few screws and a couple inches of dowel rod.
beautiful little piece,, Stan,,, interesting species of wood,,never heard of blue pine,,, If I could stumble across some of that,,, I think I would be temped to make some stuff out of soft woods again,,, it would be a crime to slop paint on top of that wood,,,
