  1. Rockler sells one Works well, I use mine for dovetail splines on miters But love my dowelmax!
  2. Tough call. Not really sure from these pics. I am used to seeing aged reclaimed western locally but don't have a lot of experience looking at aged Claro. My above comment was my best guess and only a guess based on my experience. I wouldn't be shocked if it was even a different species. I'd guess the top pic is western...
  3. No way to tell for sure,but I spend a fair bit of time browsing at Gobi walnut here in Portland which specializes in western and this looks pretty similar. Definitely could be something totally different.
  4. Thanks! There have been a few occasions when I needed a longer assembly table so I figured I'd go big!
  5. Had to measure final dimensions. Seven feet with vise closed. Eight when open!
  6. Thanks! I'm happy with how it turned out. Will suit my work flow. The repair just adds a design feature which I'm sure will be followed by numerous other dings. Appreciate the help along the way!
  7. And to bring this full circle
  8. Ok, getting back on track. Plugged with dowel and inlayed. I'll post a pic when done Not perfect but I can live with it Thanks for all the help!
  9. Yeah, it was a bit stressful. A buddy lent me his festool 1400 router with a spiral 3/4 inch bit. He also lent me a track but my bench was to long to clamp easily. I'd never used the system before so maybe I just didn't know how to adapt it. I wound up using the edge guide and puckering a bit. Cut like butter through the hard maple. The bit cut about 3 inches deep. I'm going to use a drill to finish it since the hole will act as a guide I'm going to plug it with a 3/4 inch dowel and inlay the top year out with my white side inlay kit I'm going to inlay a circle to make it a no brainer plug. The squaring would take a bit more work and I'm not sure I see the advantage other the style? Thanks for all the help!
  10. I just found a piece to inlay from the same stock. Thanks!
  11. Was thinking about putting a planning stop somewhere... Great suggestion!
  12. Great idea! Put in a 3/4 inch dowel with epoxy filling in the champher and re drill if I'm understanding. That could work!
  13. I'm nearing the end of this project and was just marveling at how few mishaps I've had! I was routing the dog holes when the router jerked. Not sure why but certainly could have been me. I added a big champher to the hole but still stands out and isn't smooth Anyway, looking for opinions... It's a work bench that's going to get beat up eventually, so I could just leave it be I could try and drill it out and plug it with an 1.5 plug. I could add more of a champher and make a unique dog for it Other ideas?
  14. Rockler has a jig as well to set on miters for splines. I use it all the time to do this joint
  15. Thank's for the help. 90% done
