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!

Dovetail Workstation

Traditional workbenches are great! The problem is that planning and project assembly tasks are best done at a low bench, but cutting joinery such as dovetails is more comfortable at a higher bench. Most shops don’t have multiple benches for multiple uses, so we bend down for our dovetailing. This workstation seeks to solve that problem! When placed on a standard bench top it raises your work up so you can stand erect and work more comfortably. It includes work-holding clamps so it may be used on any work-surface, no vice required. And other clever features, such as a drawer to hold all your dovetailing tools and a replaceable chopping surface, make it very versatile.

Adjustable Router Bit Rack

This rack was created with that in mind. It is designed to evolve with your collection. Not only can you move the bits around, you can also move the holes! This makes it possible to group bits by type, to add more places for 1/4-inch or 1/2-inch shaft bits, and each bit holder is removable so you may keep the bit protected when you take it to your bench or router table. This may be the last bit rack you ever build!

2×6 Roubo Workbench

Andre Roubo was among the oldest of the old-timey woodworkers, and the unique drawings found in his eighteenth century book have inspired woodworkers for over 200 years. Stumpy has designed a version of this bench which is by far the easiest, least expensive version to make. You can build one without difficult joinery, and without compromises in strength and features, all from cheap construction lumber! It's big, beefy and full of all the features a hand tool woodworker, or even a power tool woodworker, would appreciate.

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.

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.

Table Saw Workstation

This is the ultimate table saw improvement! Not only does it add a giant work area to your bench top or contractor style saw, it can be combined with some of our other homemade tools to create an entire workshop in a 4X8 foot area! There are also sixteen drawers, several storage shelves, and room for various other small machines. Add a bench top drill press and a mini lathe, you name it!  (There's even a built in lumber rack, for goodness sake!)

Dovetail Machine

I designed a dovetail machine that can be made from wood, and has more features than most of the top of the line commercial versions. This machine is designed to be used with your router to make fast, even, beautiful through dovetail joints that look like you made them by hand. It is micro-adjustable so you can set how tight you want the joint to be, and it allows you to easily change the spacing and size of the tails and pins. It will also make sliding dovetail joints and router dadoes!

Shop Vac Cyclone

A mini cyclone designed to keep your filter clean and your vacuum working hard! There are commercial versions on the market, but ours is easy and inexpensive to make, and will mount directly on your vacuum so you don't have to pull a separate bucket around. Vacuum surgery is optional, and we walk you through the whole thing!  This project was featured on episodes 51 & 52 of "The Stumpy Nubs Workshop".

Simple Router Mortising Jig

This jig is simple and inexpensive to make, but well thought out to provide a surprising level of functionality. It may be used with a plunge router and an edge guide to create accurate, repeatable mortises. You can cut tricky ones too, such as double mortises, parallel mortises and even mortises in round stock.
