Sliding-Top Router Table

‹Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

It may look like a regular router table, but don’t be fooled! It has a feature that very few have, and those who do would never want to be without again! The front of the table surface slides in a precision track, and that makes all the difference. It’s like having a built in coping sled for safely and accurately routing small parts or routing the end of narrow stock. You clamp your work piece right down to the table, then slide the carriage past the bit. It adds a level of safety and precision that no standard router table can match, and the uses are endless. Add to that the six drawers for bit and accessory storage and you have a router table that will do more things and last longer than any you’ve ever owned!

Bench-Top Biscuit Joiner

This machine was born out of frustration! Stumpy had a cheap hand-held biscuit joiner that he picked up on a whim at Harbor Freight. The problem with cheap units like that is the difficulty that comes with making an accurately placed slot without the tool rocking out of position during the cut!  So, like any good woodworker, Stumpy set out to find a solution. And the result is a bench top unit that can make a cheap tool into something easier to use than even the expensive hand-held versions.  The Bench-top Biscuit Joiner is fast and accurate, inexpensive to build, and has dozens of uses. It's great for edge gluing boards, strengthening any butt joint, cutting slots for raised panels and picture frames... you name it!

Table Saw Taper Jig

This is my version of an idea first presented in Fine Woodworking Magazine (Issue #178) by Richard Beebe. This taper jig works like a sled, securely holding your workpiece and keeping your hands safe throughout the cut, even for narrow tapers, such as chair legs. My version is a little different that his. It adjusts equally from both ends of the fence, and will cut wide panels as well as narrow stock.

Homemade Router Lift

This lift features an improved tracking mechanism, adjustments are made from above the table using a 1 1/8" socket or wrench, it attaches to a homemade router plate, and will go into almost any router table that has a removable plate. Or you can use it by itself as a stand-alone mini router table! The plans are designed for a standard 3 1/2 - 3 3/4" round, removable router motor.

Spring Clamps (free)

These homemade spring clamps are easy to make, and cost almost nothing (assuming you have some scrap wood and rubber bands laying around.) They're great for light duty clamping, and make an excellent project for kids- just be sure to supervise while they use the band saw or scroll saw. The link below will provide you with patterns for a large and small version.

24″ Band Saw

This band saw is BIG on everything except size. It features a full 24" of throat capacity, yet it's small enough to fit on a bench. It's loaded with features that even the commercially made saws lack, like a built in sliding crosscut table, ball bearing blade guides, and a unique dust collection manifold. You can use common 104"-105" blades and the best part is, it's made almost entirely from wood!

Saw Bench

Every workshop should have at least one saw bench. Not only is this an indispensable tool for sawing, it’s also a comfortable and portable workspace for chopping, boring and all sorts of other tasks. This version of the classic saw bench includes some extra features. For one thing, there’s a split that runs down the center to support both sides of the board while you rip down its length. There are holes for holdfasts to secure your work while you drill or chop sitting down. And it’s large enough to use as a step stool or an extra seat while shooting the breeze. But the best part is it can be built with some old construction lumber!

Incremental Tenon Jig

This tenon jig is yet another example of how you can use a homemade incremental positioner in amazing ways! It provides a positive stop every 1/6" (which can be micro-adjusted to the tiniest amount), making it impossible to set up the jig wrong, and making it easy to make many tenons that are all exactly the same size without laying them out individually. The accuracy and repeatability of this jig is unique in any homemade or even store-bought version- just check out the video below to see! But the best part is, it's inexpensive and easy to make using our detailed plans, complete with lots of photos and step-by-step instructions!

Table Saw Fence

This fence is truly unique with an innovative locking system that self squares to the blade, a micro adjuster for fine tuning your cuts, and an anti-kick-back European style with detachable extensions. Even the rails are made from wood! It's designed to fit any saw from small, bench top units to large cabinet saws, with or without side tables. There's even a built in pencil & accessory holder! (This project can be used on its own, but it is also designed to fit our deluxe table saw workstation)

Universal Clamp Rack

This may be the only clamp rack you ever need. It will hold between 20-40 clamps, depending on the type, including F-clamps, parallel clamps, pipe clamps, bar clamps or pistol grip clamps. Set up the rack according to the types you own now. If you get more of a different type later, the rack adjusts to always efficiently use the valuable wall space. And it only requires a half sheet of plywood!

Box Joint Machine

Building box/finger joint jigs has become a bit of a hobby among some woodworkers, like marble machines or complex mouse traps. They are admittedly complicated, but fun to build and really useful tools. I've designed several, but this one is my favorite. It will cut any joint configuration you can imagine, without any complicated setup or attachments to swap around. You don't need a dado set to use it, though using one will speed up the process. It will cut a joint up to 18" wide, and is compatible with any 10-inch table saw.
