      wbrooks, it that the Freud router bit cabinet I see there? If so did you build it per the plans or did you alter or change anything? Last time I was at Woodcraft the Freud rep was there and tehy were handing out free plans for a router bit cabinet, the flip side of the plan had a chart that looked similar to the one in your photo.

            wbrooks (or anyone else):

            When you are joining boards, as for example for a table top, is it sufficient to have a jointer? Or do you also need a planer? I look forward to a time when I can build the kind of pieces each of you have shared here.

              Bob. The plans are from December 2003 Wood Magazine but were developed with the help of Freud (The chart on the door) so I would imagine it would be the same plans that freud is handing out. The only thing I changed was the door, I made a raised panel door instead of the flat panel in the plans. Also the plans call for using a 9/16" forstner bit to create the the holes for your 1/2" bits. I found that to be far too sloppy and went with a 1/2". The bits are quite snug but have always come out in any season.

                WI Troy, those two tools go hand in hand but there are several ways to accomplish tasks in woodworking. When I started (cedar blanket chest above) I only had a Router and a RAS so I took a wood working course at the local trade school just to use their jointer, planer, shaper and stroke sander.
                I also built a few projects using my router with a straight cutter and a strait edge to joint the boards for glue up.

                BTW thanks for the complements all

                        Man, I'll be glad when this thread gets a page 2! Do you have any idea how long it takes to download with a lousy 26.4 dial-up? Well, it's a looooong time, believe me. [img]tongue.gif[/img] [img]tongue.gif[/img]

                          Here's a table I built for a friend, he did the tile work. I'll see if this works.
