    Mini Router Table

    Like many I have a router on the one wing of the TS. And yes it gets in the way sometimes but for larger work it works well. Having been given a Bosch 1604 I saw opportunity in the form of a mini router table. Scanning the shop I found a nice place to stow it away, in the form of a drawer. Lost 3 small drawers but they were only 9 inches wide smaller stuff I can displace, albeit remembering where I did so may be an issue. To make the router lift I am using a small Lab Scissor lift. About 4 inch square with more than enough lift for this task. Put in drawer slides to guide the router assembly smoothly up and down. Had to run a 1/4 threaded rod through the front to lock the sled in place after setting the height with the lower adjustment wheel. So far the drawer is made, sits level and has 4 sets of 150lb drawer slides to support it. The sled is made, all the kinks worked out and it now awaits a wheel to attach to the lift and a switch, box and some wiring. While I know 4 inch DC ports and systems are all the rage my shop has 2 1/2 and it works, not going to go through a major refrb at this time. So the port will be for a DC hose but inverted as the side of the drawer has 1/2 clearance so nothing can stick out. Only issue I have not got a working design for is the mechanical locks to keep the drawer from sliding back in while in use. Have two ideas about it that some mock ups will be in order to see how they work. It's coming, but at my typical pace, kinda slow.

    Army Medics Among The Patriot Woodworkers

    And Never Forget the importance of clean underwear. A radio quote from Iraq, that of course I got yelled at for making: 13. If I am killed someone please tell my mother I had on clean underwear. It is in my right front cargo pocket.

    These people with the phones and gotta get the picture mentality. No sense of the danger forthcoming. Unbelievable!

    Best drill bit

    Don't threaten to put me on a cross but I got some Ironton bits from Northern that to my surprise have done rather well. The kit even had extras of common sizes. Got them on sale for $10 last summer, bought 5 sets. Used at work and have yet to break one, or have to sharpen them.

    Nice work!!! My attempt at work with a Dremel would not be something I would be willing to post.

    I am thinking racoon here. Maybe because one visited a few days ago. Was like wild kingdom that night. I think the cats do it to annoy me, invite all the neighborhood vagrants.

    Mobile Base For Floor Model Drill Press

    I made curtains out of two of those blankets for my buddy's basement doors. Added grommets also from HF and put up a piece of electrical conduit and wham, instant, cheap, and good insulating curtains.

    They have now been painted with some Bronze colored hammered metal finish paint. Took a note from Larry Buskirk's recent work.

    Assembly table of my dreams

    When done will it be mobile? One picture shows one mobile the other not. Just curious, wondering if you had a preference. Like Grandpadave I don't have the room but you never know might win the lottery.... If I ever bought a ticket.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
