  1. Sorry @Coop somehow that picture got reversed the hinges are on the left, drawers are front only, good catch though you’re the only one that noticed ! All drawers are full extension Accuride except the top right drawer for 1/4” bits that’s just a wood slide, I was going to put the switch there but it was a poor choice for it so I moved the switch to the end on the right side and made that spot a drawer for 1/4” bits.

    Hopefully I can finish both up tomorrow I also need to do the burn in on my new pellet smoker.

    yeah that's a huge glue up for sure but well done. i friend has a pellet smoker and is a master at running it, i never turn down in invitation for supper at his house

  3. Really coming out very nice Paul, what a great final resting place for your dad, he would be proud. Quick question, the auxiliary fence that’s over your factory rip fence, how is it held in place ? I’d like to make one, seems like it would come in handy, thanks in advance.

  4. beautiful work Paul that will really pop with some finish on it, and i'll chime in on that style of clamps @Chet, i had some custom made many years ago by a friend and i much prefer them to the band clamps, i think they are easier to put on and can be set before the glue up among other reasons, mine are made of aluminum and use 1/4" threaded rod

    So only the motor fits into the lift and not the entire fixed based router? I’m slow at catching on! :o

    That’s correct Coop just the motor, I think all the big names sell just the bare motor, no base, we’re not slow, we’re pacing ourselves :P

    Mumblety-peg with a knife.

    my wife thought i was crazy when i told her my dad taught me how to play that, all us kids carried a pocket knife, we had to have something to cut up the watermelon and apples we liberated from the local farm

  7. Good info @Chestnut I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with it, you don’t hear much about the Rockler brand of lifts and I don’t know why, mine has performed great and the price is reasonable, nice score, be sure to post some pictures when you get it installed

  8. Time to get with the plan @Coop and get a lift, I hated going under that table to make adjustments, giant PIA in my opinion, very fine adjustments and bit changes all from the top of the table, no bending down again. I put a PC 690 variable speed router in mine, I don’t often use large bits but when i do it handles it quite well I think, you’ll never regret a lift
