Joinery #3, Box Joints in Wood

Students will learn how to make box joints and finger joints that are used to build small and midsize joints of substantial strength. Each student will be making several joints on our standard shop jig. Next, we will build a jig for you to take home and use on your own saw. With this jig we will build a box with strong corners. Discussions will be held to show you the assembly, gluing and rough finishing the box.

Router Table - Enhanced

In this 2 day class you will build a router table for your shop. Installing your router in this router table will increase its usefulness well beyond using it as a hand-held tool.

This will be a moderately upgraded router table that will save space in the average home shop, as it can be put away when not in use.It will have a 20” x 24” table top with a melamine finish. A cutout for an insert plate will be made to accommodate an industry standard 9.25” x 11.75”router plate (not included*). The base frame will be built out of 3⁄4” high grade plywood.

You will be wiring up a built in electrical junction box containing a switch and duplex outlet that your router will plug into. Melamine edge banding around the table top will be included to give the top a finished appearance.

The router table will also include a sturdy movable fence with slotted grooves and hold down clamp knobs to aid in positioning your work piece on the table. In the class we will discuss various routers that you can purchase along with their pro/con features to suit your individual work requirements.

*A blank shop-made insert plate can be made at extra cost at the conclusion of the class that you can machine to accommodate your particular router.
