This Woodsmith Plan is a downloadable PDF file that you save to your computer after you complete your order. You can sharpen your woodworking skills with helpful tips and techniques from the editors of Woodsmith and ShopNotes magazines. If you’d like even more great ideas for getting more from your router, go to: Router Tables at PlansNow.
It’s made from two pieces of aluminum angle joined together by a small wood block (see end view below right).
When gluing and clamping small parts together, it’s always a challenge to align large clamps to hold them in place as the glue dries. Place a T-nut in each hole at the back edge of the stop block, slide a threaded rod through the holes in both of the blocks, and then screw them into the T-nuts, like you see in the side view below right.
To use the clamp, loosen the wing nuts and place the parts to be clamped between the blocks. So, to store these and other small items, I built a pull-out storage case, like you see in the photo at right.
While I was vacationing near my hometown in Ohio in August, I received a phone call from a long-time family friend, Dave Corwin, from Delaware, Ohio.
Dave also commented that he really thought the simple resaw pivot block for the band saw was a great idea. Every issue of ShopNotes is packed full of projects, informative articles, and tips to make your shop time more enjoyable. It won’t take a lot of time, effort, or material to improve your shop with these handy plywood projects.
Plus, in Router Workshop, we’ll show you our Top 10 Hand-Held Router Accessories that will help you get more out of your hand-held router. And, as always, you’ll find lots of other informative pages inside this issue of ShopNotes.
Neither Don nor Paul’s name is as familiar perhaps as Norm Abram, but to me their magazines were groundbreaking. Paul Roman, and his wife Jan, started Fine Woodworking in 1975 and it eventually expanded into a publishing empire that includes magazines for woodworking, home building, cooking, and gardening. Filed under Fine Woodworking, ShopNotes Magazine, Woodnet Forum, Woodsmith, Workbench Magazine.
Get the most from your table saw with essential tips & techniques developed by the editors of Woodsmith magazine. This panel only works for cuts when the blade is 90° to the saw table — which accounts for most of the cuts that I make.


There’s another large opening found on contractor and benchtop table saws I haven’t mentioned, up until now. So it’s important that all of my power tools be portable and take up as little space as possible.
Then, after removing the top of an adjustable clamping table, I mounted the router table to the clamping table stand, as shown in the left photo above. Best of all, I can remove the router and quickly fold the table up to store it against the wall whenever it’s not in use (right photo).
It’s hard to get the drill bit centered and keep the dowel from turning as the hole is drilled. Then slip the clamping jig over the dowel and squeeze the kerf together with a small clamp.
A slotted hole at each end accepts a flange bolt from the table so you can quickly mount and adjust the fence to meet almost any drilling challenge.
Put the pieces together by slipping the threaded rod through the adjusting block and adding washers and locknuts, like you see in the drawing and detail below.
I usually measure several times just to make sure I get it right.Then I made the simple drawer gauge shown in the photo below. They are drilled to hold flange bolts and two sections of threaded rod, as the illustration shows below.
Position the front of the clamping block to extend slightly beyond the edge of the base so you can turn the knobs and secure the stop block in place. The case is large enough to hold a couple of small plastic storage cabinets with lots of drawers (the kind you find at hardware stores and home centers). A handle attached to the side lets me simply pull it out to get to the items and then push it back out of the way again.
He said he really enjoyed the article and was especially tickled and surprised when I told him I wrote it. This easy-to-build outfeed support gives you an extra hand when you need it — and stores easily when you don’t.
Each has probably influenced more people to get into the shop and actually build something than just about anyone else on Garrett’s list. Woodsmith, published by August Home Publishing (they also put out ShopNotes, Workbench, Garden Gate, and Cuisine at home), is unique in that it doesn’t just show you a pretty project, it helps you build the project with detailed step-by-step instructions and clear, concise drawings and photos. Paul’s goal was to have a woodworking magazine that not only informed, but also inspired its readers. And this is not a knock on Norm, but I’d rather read about woodworking and then go do it myself, than watch it being done on TV anyday.


When I built this one, I intended to use it to protect my rip fence during those types of cuts. Built-in supports on the left and outfeed sides of the cart effectively increase the size of the saw table. So I built the simple drill press table and fence with a replaceable insert you see in the photo above. Two bottom-mounted T-tracks attach the table to the drill press, as you can see in detail ‘b’ and the photo at right. So I built the micro-adjuster you see in the photo above using spare parts I had around the shop.
Then you can cut a dado at the bottom of the fence to hold the piece of L-shaped aluminum in place.
This allows the aluminum strip attached to the fence to be moved forward and backward one thread at a time when you make fine fence adjustments.
Now, I don’t have to worry about the “numbers.” The gauge always shows me the exact distance. Next, slide the four flange bolts in the T-track, slip the blocks over the bolts and add the washers and wing nuts. Finally, snug up the star knobs and tighten the wing nuts to lock the clamping block in place. When I married, our first home was across the street from Dave’s, so we became friends as well as neighbors.
These handy tips can quickly improve the dust-collection capabilities of your table saw without spending a lot of money. But after making some improvements to the basic fence, I decided to make it a permanent fixture.
There were three of us woodworkers on the block, so we could often be found in each other’s shop on any given day sipping a cup of coffee and telling a story or two. You can buy an inexpensive plastic hood that rests inside the saw cabinet (Ours came from Rockler).
