Portable Router Table

Furnished content.

Portable Router TableThis seems to be the year when I re-visit all my original shop-built fixtures. No more upgrades and modifications to the old, it's time for new. Today's episode: The Portable Router Table. The lower part really didn't change other than sanding and refastening, the tabletop changed significantly. Bigger, with a new insert, t-track and fence system. Measured it's storage spot so that it just fits.

Gnome Home - Roof & Stump Mount

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Gnome Home - Roof & Stump MountI got a request for a Gnome Roof from a very nice lady that found me on a neighborhood Social Media site. I decided to help her and make her a Gnome Roof for a stump in her yard!The stump is Crepe Myrtle (about 12” D. The trunk was not flat so I had to find a way to cut it flat with the only tool I had… an 8” electric “extend it” pole saw trimmer! I can't believe it work so well on a somewhat hard wood!
.
In this photo you can see the slice i cut off on the right.
.I had to come up with a way to make a level cut line around the stump so I made this jig and used my level to make marks all around the trunk. Then I connected the dots!I used my pole saw to make the cutout for the KEY. Lot's of gouging and chiseling! It has to be level sitting in the cavity.
.
I made a KEY that mounts on in the center of the trunk. After I set the roof on the KEY a 1/4 turn on the roof and it locks the roof in place.
