Hope everyone had a nice Christmas, I figured I would give a quick update. I didn't get a ton done on the cabinet through the holidays.
Now I have been in desperate need for a router table and it just so happened that I received the Kreg pocket hole jig for Christmas and wanted to try it out. Now I will never use the jig for anything I consider fine furniture, but after using it to build the table, I have to say it does have its place in my shop! Awesome tool.
So this past weekend I cranked a router table out. I still need to put some dust collection on it as well as a door. I made it from 3/4" baltic birch and the Kreg router table top. I had some left over 2" foam insulation from when I insulated my garage door and took the opportunity to use it on the base. The three sides received the 2" panels and the door will have a piece as well. Hopefully it will eliminate some of the noise. I will let you know as soon as I finish it up. So far so good.
I should also mention it is outfitted with a Jessem Mast-R-lift I bought a while ago. Its nice to finally get some use of it
I built it to be just 1/16 under my table saw top to use as an out-feed table. With a small shop like mine, Multi-use is essential.
Here are a few photos of the router table as well as a quick mock up of the lower stretcher design I worked on last night. I roughed out a couple scrap pieces to get the feel for the curves right. Nothing like seeing it in real 3D space. I like where its going and will start to make some templates.
P.S. I'm working on catching my blog up to my posts on here. Check it out if you like http://paulsebastianstudio.com
