Sprinkler System

  I bet you have been wondering where I am ? I was suppose to be working on my 2nd router table/ out feed table . The truth of the matter is I have been doing everything but working on my router table .Those of you that are married will know what I'm Talking about. This past week has been all about her and what she wants. It really don't matter its all stuff that needed to be done and we need to get things done before I return to work for the winter. The main thing I'm trying to get done is putting in a sprinkler system . I ve got all the pipes ran and hooked up for the main water supply now tomorrow I can start on the drippers and other parafinailia that goes along with it . It would certainly help if I only had a clue about what I am doing. OH well can't be a expert at everything ..........I'm not an expert at anything.......................Rick

router/out feed table

   I got my camera fixed so now I can start showing some pics again. I'll start with my router table that is all ready complete ( the one I didn't get any pics for ) as you can see it's strickly for utilitarian use there is absolutly nothing fancy about it and thats the way I prefer it. After all it is a peice of shop equipment and it should look like it . The case is built from 1/2 " Oak plywood and the face frames are made from some old cedar I took off a pump house that was being torn down . Not the best wood in the world but the price was right. The drawers on either side of the router are made from melamine shelving material, it's heavy but it sure makes for a nice interior look dont You think? The drawer slides are some that I picked up at yard sale for $ 1.50 per set brand new still in the package. The table tops them selves are a matched set that I pick up at a Salvation Army trift store for $3.50 each. If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to say something If you would like send pics of you'res and post them right here on the blog. Thanks for looking in.......................Rick

Router Tables

  I do have my router table / out feed table done but I have no pictures apparently I am having camera problems and was not aware of it. I am however building 2 router tables that will be identical so I'll get my camera fixed or replaced and will be able to show the process of that one. I unfortunatly have already built the cabinet I built both of them at the same time. But I still need to make all the drawers and cut the hole in the top for the router plate. When they are both finished they will sit at the out feed side of the table saw and act as out feed tables. Sorry for all the problems .......Rick
